    The right herbal “superstars” can treat common ailments like colds and flu, inflammation, minor cuts, infections, pain, muscle spasms, anxiety, poor digestion, and insomnia.

    “. . . but where do I begin? How do I even start a medicinal herb garden?”

    It’s the question many people ask, normally out of fear of getting it wrong, or growing something that could poison their family. But starting your herb garden isn’t as overwhelming as you may think—and spending time in a medicinal herb garden is healing by its very existence!


    About the Presenter

    Presented by Ehris Urban and Velya Jancz-Urban from The Grounded Goodwife. Velya’s gregarious personality and Ehris’ serene energy enable this mother/daughter duo to connect with audiences through their green witch workshops and herstory unsanitized presentations. Funny and frank, Velya and Ehris share their respect for Mother Nature, enthusiasm for all things green, and belief that history (and life!) should never be boring.


    Video Chat

    We will meet online with a video chat using Zoom. If you have never used Zoom before, it is very simple and user friendly. Once you receive the video chat invite, you will be prompted to install Zoom on your computer or other device.
