The public is invited to attend a Backyard
Herbal First Aid Workshop on Saturday, August 3, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. to
12:00 p.m. at Sonoma Garden Park.
Join Tina Tedesco, a long-time local herbalist with a practice
at the Sonoma Holistic Center, and learn how medicinal herbs can be used for home-based
first aid. Tedesco will explore the core group of common herbs that one can
keep on hand at all times. These herbs are used to treat a variety of simple
first aid situations such as burns, scrapes, minor cuts, and bruises as well
as other common ailments including colds/flu, fevers, sleep issues,
toothaches, and food poisoning.
Some of the herbs that will be discussed during the workshop are available
to grow in your home garden or can be easily found at local health stores.
These herbs have a long track record of effectiveness as well as a wide
range of applications, and can be used safely for all ages.
The cost of the workshop is $10 for Sonoma Ecology Center members and $15
