Each participant will leave with several 2-ounce tins of salve that we make in class and written instructions so you can easily make these salves on your own at home.

"I started making herbal salves when my son was diagnosed with extensive eczema as a baby. He would scratch so hard that his skin would bleed. Although the salves I made did not cure his eczema, they relieved the itchiness, moisturized, and promoted skin healing, so he was a much happier baby! I now make a big batch of salves for my family every year, for all of our skin needs.
You will be surprised how easy it is to make healing salves in your own kitchen from locally sourced ingredients that you control."
Gisele Hardock is a Master Beekeeper, Educator, and Market Gardener who lives in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains of Alberta. She has been keeping bees since 2011, a hobby that began innocently enough but has flourished into a full-on insect obsession. An educator at heart, her big project is introducing people of all ages to the fascinating world of bees through her business, Hive and Harvest. She has taught preschool through high school students about bees in school classrooms, 4H, summer camps, daycares, homeschool groups, and online.
Throughout the winter, Gisele also works at Growing Roots Forest Play, a local Forest School, helping preschool-aged kids connect with the natural world, others, and themselves. In the spring and summer, she can be found keeping bees (of course!), growing vegetables and herbs in her permaculture greenhouses, and adventuring in the forest with her family.
