Make Your Own Balm

On Tuesday, August 19 Holly Bellebuono of Vineyard Herbs returns to the Polly Hill Arboretum for her popular salve-making workshop.

This fun, hands-on workshop starts with a walk to identify and collect medicinal herbs and weeds on the arboretum grounds. Then participants make their own oil infusions and beeswax-based ointments. Learn practical knowledge on when and how to use herbal salves and take home your useful creations.

Supplies are included. Class is from 1 to 3 p.m. and costs $40, or $35 for arboretum members. Please preregister by calling 508-693-9426.
