Hawthorn Hands-On: Recipes and Remedies

Join hawthorn whisperer, EagleSong Gardener, as she demonstrates how to make several different preparations using hawthorn buds, flowers, leaves, fruit, wood and even the thorns! Using simple, accessible resources, learn how you can turn the amazing Crataegus genus into a personal lifelong ally.

EagleSong will demonstrate how to make hawthorn teas, decoctions, tinctures, vinegars, oxymel, fruit leather, a delicious heart tonic fudge, and show what happens when we let nourishing herbs out of the box!

Even with all of hawthorn’s benefits and no harmful effects, science suggests there just isn’t enough “active ingredient” to account for its observable actions. But, we, herbalists understand that the magic of hawthorn is in the sum of the parts, not just active constituents.

You’ll learn what hawthorn is good for and how to put it on your table 3-5 times a week…for the rest of your life! This is a fast paced workshop guaranteed to peek your interest in seeing the heart anew; as more than a pump, as a major communication center of the body. The home of courage, strength, spirit and possibility. Just the medicine for times like these!
