Summer Garden Wisdom

With Kumudini Shoba

June 27, 2020

Join us in the sweet, woodsy Westgarden at the Whidbey Institute to learn about supporting health with Ayurveda practioner Kumudini Shoba.

This class will explore using nature to support cleansing the body, with a focus on using plants and herbs from the garden and surrounding forest. This is the second class in a series of three that will run through fall of 2020.

While the spring class looked at the cleansing properties of nettles, this class will focus on the abundant healing energy of summer! Kumudini Shoba, Ayurvedic practitioner, will help us explore an assortment of medicinal flowers that will be in bloom in mid-June. From roses to lavender to calendula and clover, we will smell, taste, and learn all about these plant allies. This class will be hands on and will take place in the garden and greenhouse.

The class will be held on Saturday, June 27 from 1:00-4:00 pm.
