Herbal Field Trip & Medicinal Workshop

May 6 and 7, 2016


Co-Sponsored by the Committee of 100 for the Ozark Folk Center.

Early registration is advised. This event is for people who are building a knowledge base for identifying wild plants and mushrooms, using herbs and essential oils, and self-sufficiency. Herbal merchants will be showing their wares throughout the park.  


The hike takes place Friday morning on the Ozark Folk Center and City Park trail. Participants must be able to walk over rugged, uneven terrain. There will be concurrent breakout classes with optional hands-on workshops during the afternoon.

Saturday’s topics include using essential oils for health; the health benefits of Capsicum, Herb of the Year 2016; an explanation of the different paradigms of healing; and one farmer’s methods for raising healthy pork. Herbal luncheons and evening music concerts are included with registration.
