How to Grow and Use Medicinal Herbs in Palo Alto

  • Common Ground Nursery 687 Arastradero Road Palo Alto, CA, 94306 United States (map)

'Let food be thy medicine...' - Hippocrates

Come learn about herbs that grow well in our Bay Area climate and that are easy to use for self care. We will focus on kid- and dog-friendly herbs, like lavender and rosemary. Learn to identify, grow, and use them on a regular basis, including:

  • cultivating the plants
  • dealing with bulk fresh/dry herbs
  • using in tincture, essential oil or flower essence forms

Penni Thorpe is a volunteer at CGG and a long time lay herbalist and flower essence practitioner in San Mateo. She started learning about easy-to-grow herbs and their use while raising her children. See more classes and workshops Penni offers at her website, here:
