Carrying a first aid kit is a practical and easy way to take ownership over your own health. In this class we will cover some basic first aid protocol, what store bought items to include in your kit and then we will delve into the world of herbal first aid. We will learn about some local herbs that work wonderfully for first aid situations and then we will make three products for your kit: an antibacterial powder to prevent infections and stop bleeding, an all-purpose wound salve, and a topical liniment for poison oak, bites, stings and scratches.
Each student will go home with the knowledge of how to build an all-purpose first aid kit, three herbal preparations to get their kit going, and some basic knowledge about local herbs and simple medicine making techniques.
A simple lunch will be provided, please pack a water bottle and wear comfortable, farm-appropriate clothing & footwear. You will receive an email with directions to Flying Coyote Farm and more info a week prior to the workshop.
