What do you get when you combine foraging for wild, edible plants (and mushrooms) with the craft cocktail movement? A wildcrafted cocktail, of course! Try a dirty daylily martini, sumac infused gin, or rose hip liqueur. You’ll learn how to combine foraged, local, seasonal, flavors with your favorite spirits, to create unique, wildcrafted cocktails. This class includes tastings and a hands-on workshop where each student will make their own wildcrafted bitters to take home.

Plant a Pot of Tea! Creating an Herbal Tea Garden by Nan Sterman

Plant a Pot of Tea! Creating an Herbal Tea Garden by Nan Sterman

If your image of making tea starts with a white paper mesh bags filled with mysterious dried leaves, this workshop will blow your mind. Green, black, and white teas are all versions of dried and cured leaves of Camellia sinensis, which are a little to thirsty for San Diego gardens. But that’s not the case for herb teas. Our climate is great for growing lemon verbena, mint, cardamom, pineapple sage, lavender, hyssop, and many more herbs you can use to blend your very own teas, dried or fresh. In this hands-on workshop, Nan Sterman demonstrates a host of herbs that are super easy in a pot or in the ground and all of which make great teas. Get ready to get dirty while you plant a pot of tea.

This workhop features a special tea pairing reception hosted by The Spice Way. Nan can personalize one of her books while you enjoy the goodies! Books will be available for purchase.

Free event parking is located in the parking garage located behind Whole Foods.
