Here at Traditional Roots, our mission to help you learn about herbal medicine. Whether you’re a curious beginner or an advanced medical practitioner, we have exciting events planned with your needs in mind. Come to us for Hands-On Medicine Evenings (HOME), weekend intensives, evening classes and our annual Traditional Roots Herbal Conference every May. And we also come to you, offering guided medicinal plant walks in natural spaces around Portland.
Monthly Thursdays, January through April, 2019
Back by popular demand! This four-part series focuses on blending botanicals into tasty tonics. Melding the ancient world of botanical medicine with that of the modern bar mixologist, this class develops a flavorful and healing balance between the nasty tasting tinctures of the past and cocktails loaded with sugar at your local bar. All sessions include lecture and hands-on components, and participants will leave with samples and recipes to take home. Register for the full, 12-hour series and earn a mixology microcredential! You can also register for classes individually: Hot Toddies on Jan. 24, Bitters on Feb. 21, Liqueurs + Cordials on March 21, or Herbal Root Beers on April 25. We recommend early registration as this series sells out.
Monthly Saturdays, February through November.
Get your Vitamin N (for nature) and meet your plant neighbors. Free monthly herb walks run February through November from 11 a.m. to noon.
May 17-19, 2019
