Moon Magic
An Herbal Workshop with Susun Weed
Magical plants are close at hand and closely linked to the moon. Artemis - the Goddess of the Moon - has an entire genus of plants named after her. We will explore those amazing Artemisias and their mind-altering properties. And we will delve into the arcane world of the (deadly-but ever-so-useful) nightshades, which are said to only grow in moonlight. Bring your curiosity and your spell book. Love charms, third-eye opening tinctures and Moon Magic await you.

Cost: $25 if registered and prepaid by October 19th; $30 if registering after the 19th.
