Celebrate and savor the delicate flavors of summer with delicious, cooling mints and cheerful edible flowers! Local community herbalists Katherine Elmer and Kara Buchanan will provide delicious herbal “mocktails” featuring locally grown or wild-crafted medicinal plants, sparkling water, local honey, and edible flowers. There will be a brief introduction to herbal syrup making and the art and science of herbal mocktail blending for flavor and healing benefits. Add this skill to your toolkit for summer entertaining and celebrations!

Spoonful Herbals is the collaborative effort of community herbalists and educators Katherine Elmer and Kara Buchanan. Spoonful offers an annual Herbal CSA,  a six-month Community Herbalism Apprenticeship program, and a Herb Mob program that engages volunteers to bring locally harvested (gleaned) medicinal plants into our apothecary from local organic farms and green spaces such as Shelburne Farms.
