Herbalist Christina Moon will teach us how to incorporate herbs into your daily life. Christina will share this knowledge, some easy herbal collections, balms, oils, tinctures, bitters, and their uses. We’ll also press some tinctures and make personalized tea blends to take home.

After the workshop, we’ve been invited to tour the historic Russell Farm, look through the art gallery, sit in on an art demonstration, and hike the back pasture. Russell Farm is an historic 30-acre farm operated by City of Burleson. The Russell-Boren house was built in 1877 and was the home of the Russell family for 135 years. The farm was donated to the City of Burleson in October 2011 by the Boren family for historical, art and agricultural/natural uses.
