Herbal Remedies at Finley Farms

Friday, April 19 | 1:15

Following charcuterie lunch, Wellness Retreat participants will board a Big Cedar Lodge shuttle for transportation to Finley Farms, located just north of Big Cedar, approximately 45 minutes away.

Upon arrival, we’ll have a moment to grab a coffee or tea followed by a welcome from property staff.

Guests will then settle in to build a Herbal First Aid Kit with resident farmer and herbalist, Liesel McCleary. Engage in conversation exploring the many medicinal uses of common culinary herbs and other accessible grocery store items such as rosemary, oregano, mint, and more. Liesel will educate us how from first aid applications to respiratory or digestive ailments, tried and true remedies can be found in a grocery store aisle. Class participants will learn about herbal preparations, actions and applications, and will receive recipes and resources to take home.

Immediately following the Herbal First Aid Kit instruction, Liesel will engage with guests in an enlightening talk on seasonal herbs and wellness support. In this Herbal Wellness Session, we’ll shine a spotlight on winter herbs, delving into the world of herbal energetics—emphasizing the warming, nourishing, and protective qualities of herbs – changes based on season
