Basic Barnyard Herbalism with Your Livestock and Pets with Amy Fewell
September 8th from 10am-12pm
With Book signing and author chat from 12:30 til 1:30pm
Join local Castleton author and homesteader Amy Fewell, author of the new Homesteader's Herbal Companion for a course on herbal wellness for livestock and pets.
We try to treat ourselves with herbal remedies and daily herbal maintenance, but why not our pets and livestock?
In this class, students will learn the basics of herbalism when it comes to animals. We'll walk through ways to incorporate herbs into your animal's daily routine, and how to use herbal preparations to treat common issues. Students will get to take home a simple salve (and recipe) that can be used on all animals.
Amy is also the author of The Homesteader's Natural Chicken Keeping Handbook (Spring 2019) and the Founder of the Homesteaders of America organization and conference based in Front Royal VA, October 12 & 13th 2018.
