Relax & Restore with Herbs

  • Old West Church Food Forest, 131 Cambridge Street, Boston, MA 02114 MAP

Join herbalist Lauren Almquist at Old West Church Food Forest for this workshop on herbs that support relaxation and restoration of the mind, body and soul.

We’ll learn about about herbs that have a calming and restorative effect on the body, the growing habits and tendencies of some common herb species, how to support different plants, and how to respectfully harvest and use them as medicine or food. We’ll drink some tea too!

Some herbs we will cover during this session include lemon balm, mint, sage, lavender, blue vervain, holy basil, and more!


This workshop will be led by Lauren Almquist, founder of Heartspace Herbals & Garden Design. An herbalist, garden coach and garden designer, Lauren empowers people to create outdoor spaces that support themselves and the ecosystem, with ease and confidence. She is also a food forest steward at the Boston Nature Center Food Forest.
