    Event description

    The bitter truth: plants to support healthy digestion

    We often associate bitters with cocktails, but did you know that cocktail bitters originated as an herbal remedy? Learn about the physiology of bitters, how to use them, and how to compliment them with other herbs to troubleshoot digestive issues. Participants will make their own bitters from herbs on the farm.

    About the instructor:
