Looking for an antidote to the chill and darkness of fall, and the flus and colds that often accompany this season of transition?

Looking for an antidote to the chill and darkness of fall, and the flus and colds that often accompany this season of transition?

On the third Monday of each month this fall, members of the community are invited to join medicinal herbalist Chanchal Cabrera, for a cup of herbal tea and a free lecture on herbal healing.

Sit by the fire in the Innisfree farmhouse, sipping medicinal teas and sampling herbs grown in the farm’s apothecary gardens while you learn useful and intriguing facts about their medicinal uses.

The free series will cover a variety of topics including Seasonal Immune Support and the Medicines of Christmas. Each lecture runs from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Innisfree Farm, 3636 Trent Road off Royston Road.

Also coming up is a series of Saturday morning Medicine Making Workshops. These hands-on, make-and-take-home classes will teach the practical skills and medicine-making techniques needed to keep you healthy all winter.

For more information or to register for any of the fall classes or workshops at Innisfree, go to www.chanchalcabrera.com or call 250-336-8767. Space is limited.
