SPL Seaside Series: weekly open-air events in Small Cove Park every Wednesday in July and August
From 12.00 pm until 1.00 pm
Brighid Doherty, Deer Isle resident, herbalist, and author of the new book Drinkable Healing Herbal Infusions will discuss herbs and remedies to ease common ailments, build health, and boost immunity. Sample herbal infusions, watch how easy they are to make, and discover the joy of bringing healthy herbal beverages into your life.
Brighid Doherty is an herbalist honoring the Wise Woman Tradition of Healing. For more than two decades, Brighid has worked with plants in a variety of ways; as a student and a teacher, a gardener and a forager, a medicine maker and health consultant. She offers information and inspiration to the home herbalist through herbal workshops, herb walks, and The Healthy Herb Podcast. Brighid founded The Solidago School of Herbalism in 2018. Brighid inspires people to be more self-reliant in their health and healing process. She teaches people how to bring herbal medicine into their lives by relating to plants in their bodies, kitchens, gardens, and the wild.
SPL's Seaside Series is free and open to all. We encourage participants to bring their own seating—a camp chair or even just a blanket—plus enough sunscreen and bug spray to keep them happy. In case of rain, the event will be moved indoors to SPL.
