Community Education Program

The Community Education Program is part of East Bay Herbals' mission to provide accessible and relatable information about herbal medicine and holistic nutrition to the community.  All classes are free or low-cost and are open to the public. We aim to offer at least one free class a season, but feel free to check back on the site for recent additions as they come.

Medicinal Food Stroll: Farm To Table Eating + Your Health

Martinez Farmer's Market / Martinez, CA

East Bay Herbals / Free Community Education Class


Sunday, July 26th / 10:00 am / Meet @ States Coffee / Free!

 

Did you know that your local farmer's market is actually a treasure chest of healing and medicinal foods? While I love working with herbs, the real magic in healing begins right at your kitchen table, with the foods that you choose to prepare each day. In celebration of my completion of my Holistic Nutrition training program, join me for a free community class where we will explore the many healing foods that our local market has to offer, and connect with some local farmer's about how their growing practices lead to you getting the best food you can! We will meet in from of Front of States coffee and walk over the market together to start our adventure. Sign-ups are encouraged so that I can get an idea of how many folks will be attending!
