Linda Conroy will be coming back to The Resiliency Institute this summer, June 20-22, to teach about herbs and fermentation and the role they play in digestive health. This will be an essential weekend course for people suffering from IBS and other digestive ailments. The weekend begins on Friday evening with Linda sharing her 5 point approach to improving digestive health. Participants will learn how to make fermented food, beverages, herbal infusions and tonics, sample them, and a watch a hands on demonstration on how to make an herbal carrot kraut.
A few weeks ago we hosted Linda Conroy at The Resiliency Institute to teach Herbs for Health & Nourishment and Herbal Remedy Making. Linda shared her wealth of knowledge as a bioregional herbalist and empowered us to incorporate more herbs into our diets.
We learned about the nutrient density in a variety of plants, most of which we consider weeds. These plants contain vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, proteins, phytoestrogens and phytosterols, starches, simple and complex sugars, bioflavonoids, carotenes, and essential fatty acids. We discussed the traits of weeds – resilient, adaptable, and flexible – and realized these are the same traits we need for health.
The Resiliency Institute will be hosting Linda Conroy of Moonwise Herbs on October 18th and 19th for a weekend of herbal food and medicine making.

Over her 20 years span as an herbalist she has completed two herbal apprenticeship programs, studied for close to a decade with Isla Burgess of the International College of herbal medicine, has become certified as a Wilderness First Responder and has completed a permaculture design course.
