About the Event

This course meets once a week for 3  Thursdays in March from 7:00 to 8:30 PM Eastern.

The dates are 03/16, 03/23, and 03/30! 

Join educator, ethnoherbalist, and plant historian Naomi Spector for a 3 part continued exploration of the plant and animal traditions of Jews who work the land. While this class is designed as a continuation of Part 1, anyone who did not take part 1 is still welcome to join. 

Our learning will be centered around three main topics:

1.) Common Jewish crops and their uses in Jewish herbalism: what plants have Jewish farmers historically cultivated, and how have these plants been used for food and healing in historic Jewish communities? 

2.) Jewish herbalism for Jewish farmers: During part 1, we discussed herbal remedies commonly and historically used by Jewish farmers, such as treating splinters, cuts, and swollen ankles with plantain, cabbage and spider web. During part 2, we will focus on self-care for farmers: herbal teas, infused oils and balms for easing some of the pain and stiffness of working on the land. 

3.) The relationship between Jewish farmers and animals: How have Jewish farmers historically related to animals on and off the farm? What can we learn about this ancient relationship from Jewish folk traditions, animal amulets and stories about animals?

**Please note: this class focuses on Jewish history, literature and folklore and is not a clinical herbalism class. However, part 2 of this class will take a more hands-on approach than part 1 as we will learn how to brew herbal teas and infuse oils with herbs.

This course meets once a week for 3  Thursdays in March from 7:00 to 8:30 PM Eastern.

The dates are 03/16, 03/23, and 03/30!
