Get ready for the cold and flu season by learning how to stock and use a herbal medicine cabinet. Using common kitchen ingredients, and medicinal plants you’ll be ready to treat common winter illnesses both preventatively and acutely. Together we will make an herbal cough syrup for everyone to take home. Everyone will leave with a cough syrup we’ll make together, recipes and a new approach for staying healthy through the cold and flu season.

The Compost Education Centre is located on unceded and occupied Indigenous territories, specifically the land of the Lekwungen speaking people—the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations. These nations are two of many, made up of individuals who have lived within the porous boundaries of what is considered Coast Salish, Nuu-Chah-Nulth and Kwakwa’wakw Territory (Vancouver Island) since time immemorial. At the CEC we seek to respect, honour and continually grow our own understandings of Indigenous rights and history, and to fulfill our responsibilities as settlers, who live and work directly with the land and its complex, vital ecologies and our diverse, evolving communities.
