Herbs for Arthritis

Gardeners are all too familiar with the aches and pains of hands, knees and backs that have been worked too hard over the years - for the beauty and deliciousness of the fruits of our labours.  Living and working in this beautiful lush but very damp rainforest land does result in aching joints for some of us!


In this workshop we will look at the ways in which we can use herbs, diet and other suggestions to help reduce the pain and inflammation in a more natural way.


We will also include in our discussions the herbs that you can grow or that you can find growing wild, and ways in which they are helpful.


We will be NOT be dealing with acute auto-immune arthritis in this workshop, but rather the type of arthritis resulting from years of wear and tear on the joints.  Whether it's from gardening, hiking, sailing, fishing or any kind of hard work!

Amanda Howe’s classes/workshops on herbal medicine are very informative, interactive and fun. She has a wealth of knowledge to share and does so in a friendly, open teaching style.  It’s great being able to see the plants in their growing environment and have hands on experience with them as well.  My knowledge of herbs has expanded tremendously and she has inspired me to venture out on my own. I look forward to growing and harvesting herbs and making my own medicines.  Connie SH, Vancouver Island
