Prescott Farm offers series on herbs and their uses

LACONIA — Foray into the wild and tame world of herbs at Prescott Farm with Master Herbalist Melissa Morrison starting Saturday, May 13, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The Herbal Pathfinder Series will be a series of six classes (once a month, May through October) in which students will learn how to identify herb medicine plants of the fields and forest, how to harvest and then use the herbs in preparations for pleasure and medicine. Come to learn, come to enjoy the seasons and play with the herbs! You may register for one class or the entire series. All classes will take place at Prescott Farm, located on 928 White Oaks Road.

Students will learn how to identify herb and woodland plants then move into the classroom to make teas, tissanes and decoctions for healing and health. For more information on the rest of the Herbal Pathfinder Series classes offered June-October, go to
