This Thursday, Nov. 2, Emily Stock will discuss healing and how herbs can help manage inflammation, which can be the source of many of the body’s aches and pains, at Moonflower Community Cooperative at 6 p.m. in the Moonflower Deli, located at 39 East 100 North. This class is the second in the series on herbalism, the first of which was held Oct. 17. The classes focus on using the medicinal aspects of plants, and attendance is free of charge.
“Part of the co-op’s mission is to cultivate health and wellness within our community and to provide educational opportunities for our community,” said Moonflower events coordinator Stephanie Hamborsky.
The co-op typically offers two or three classes per month that are in line with their mission and reach out to the community.
“The idea is to try and sustain the community by paying practitioners in Moab but offering classes for free,” Hamborsky said.
Emily Stock, who has been studying herbalism for eight years through formal programs, apprenticeship and self study, will teach this week’s class. Stock’s classes attempt “to normalize herbal medicine and empower people to use these methods to incorporate herbs more into their daily lives,” she said.
