Join herbalist and expert grower, LuAnn Raadt, for a tour of her extensive medicinal herbs garden and adjacent wild area, followed by a short tutorial on tincture-making, with an opportunity to harvest and make your own medicine. If you wish to gather and make herbal remedies, bring your necessary supplies. (Beginners: plan to bring a small jar with lid, scissors, skewer and vodka or other menstruum of your choice.) LuAnn accepts donations for the garden in exchange for harvesting. Afterward, we will head to Keepsake Cidery for a drink, lunch and some socializing.
The medicinal herbs garden is located on the north edge of Northfield at Open Hands Farm (4151 320th Street West, Northfield, MN 55057).
Keepsake Cidery is located 7 miles south of Northfield off Highway 3 (4609 135th Street East, Dundas, MN 55019).
