Come see how much fun herbology can be with this introductory herbal extraction workshop on fire cider, a traditional herbal folk remedy that is becoming well-known.

Known for its immune-boosting and digestion-boosting effects, this savory DIY infusion is made with wholesome ingredients and steeped over time, creating a bright and spicy tonic used to invigorate one’s whole being.

Simple to make, fire cider adds a healthful ritual to one’s repertoire. Learn how everyday food and culinary herbs, when chosen and prepared wisely, can help us improve our wellbeing. Leave this class revitalized — and with a recipe and jar of finished fire cider. Come prepared to chop ingredients and get a little messy!

Nicole Irene holds a master’s degree in fine art and two herbal certifications from Dandelion Herbal Center and Sage Mountain Botanical Sanctuary and is a Reiki-trained ordained minister. Nicole has a love for local farms and sustainable, organic agriculture. She has a deep passion for fostering the relationships we hold with our food, Mother Earth and the cosmos.

Need help paying for this class? Berkshire Botanical Garden, through the generous support of our students, provides financial aid.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
