Natural Healing

Heal yourself, or at least let the bounty of nature, rather than lab created chemicals, do the job.

On Tuesday, July 26, local expert Holly Bellebuono of Vineyard Herbs, will conduct a hands on salve-making workshop from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Polly Hill Arboretum. The event starts with a walk to identify and collect medicinal herbs and weeds on the arboretum grounds. After the walk participants make their own oil infusions and beeswax-based ointments. Supplies are included and everyone gets to take home their new medicine.

The cost of the workshop is $45 or $40 for PHA members. Call 508-693-9426 to preregister.

This event will be repeated on August 9.
