Summer Wisdom from the Garden: Flowers

June 16 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Join us at the Whidbey Institute’s Westgarden for this special offering, the second of series of three herbal classes running through fall 2018.

While the spring class centered around the cleansing properties of nettles and other spring plants, the class with be all about 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 late 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.

Kumudini Shoba is from a family in Sri Lanka with a long “Vaidhya” (healer) tradition.  She is a Master Herbalist who has studied both eastern and western herbs.  She also has a master’s degree in bio-organic chemistry.
