This workshop will cover the basics of growing, processing, and marketing a range of herbs. Participants will touch on both sun and woodland species, the latter offering ways to utilize forested spaces on one's property. The instructor, herbalist and grower Sarah Sorci, will borrow from trainings on Good Agricultural Practices for Medicinal Plants through the NC Extension, and woodland medicinal agriculture training the Appalachian Beginning Forest Farmers Coalition. She is the owner of Sweet Flag Herbs.
