Transition Berkeley and Albany: Make Your Own Comfrey Tincture

Saturday | June 21, 2014 | 3:00 pm — 5:00 pm

Make your own Comfrey tincture! Comfrey is an important herb in organic
gardening, used as a fertilizer and herbal medicine. One name for comfrey is
‘knitbone’, a reminder of its traditional use in healing bone fractures. Modern
science confirms that comfrey can influence the course of some types of muscle
and joint pain. Comfrey extract is used as a skin treatment. The plant contains
allantoin, which is thought to stimulate cell growth while depressing
inflammation.

This class is part of the Transition Albany/Berkeley Health Series, taught by
Lourdes Gonzaga, a homeopathic practitioner who teaches homeopathy in first aid.

The Ashby Community Garden is on the 1300 block of Ashby, between Acton & Mabel.
