Learn to make your own backyard remedies!
Ah..choo! Got a bug bite? Maybe just started a tickle in the throat? Or feeling like you are coming down with a fever? What can you do? More and more, individuals are beginning to choose natural products over chemical ones for their families and themselves to help them through the first signs of bodily dis-ease.
In this hands-on family-friendly exploratory workshop, you’ll learn how to take care of yourself with first-aid remedies from the Hawaiian and Filipino traditions. Through exploring Chaminade University’s backyard and your own neighborhood, you’ll explore the botany, pharmacology and medicinal uses of various plants.
Before you leave you’ll make a take-home first-aid kit that will include tinctures, salves and a syrup. The workshop concludes with a cultural field experience where participants will be able to identify medicinal plant material in the wild themselves.
Chaminade University of Honolulu’s sustainable campus la’au lapa’au—Hawaiian plant medicine workshops are based on the concept of each ahupua’a having enough natural resources to take care of its community.
