Historically Hip Homesteading Class - Herb Lab

September 27 & October 3
Presented by: Woodlawn & Pope-Leighey House
Official website

Join us for the first in a series of unique locally-focused outdoor classes on the Woodlawn grounds that explore age-old processes for making beautiful, useful and often delicious goods from the land.The 1805 historic landscape, once part of George Washington's farm at Mount Vernon, provides the perfect place for this participatory weekly class that teaches you how to pick and use foraged herbs and flowers. When there were no beauty counters to peruse, farmsteaders still created an array of balms, oils, tonics, teas and soaps to use every day. Take a step into the past to create herbal products that you will use or give right now!

This series of classes will take place on the Woodlawn grounds, near the 1805 Mansion house, and in inclement weather, we will make use of our large event tent. Masks and social distancing requirements will apply and we will provide adequate space for everyone to feel comfortable. We have hand sanitizer and hand-washing stations available for your use as well.
