Please join Common Ground Health Clinic for the 7th annual brewing of the fire cider on Saturday, December 10th from 1pm—3pm at the Teche Street Community Garden at Teche and Slidell Streets in Algiers Riverview
Fire cider is a spicy tonic used to scare off colds and flu and keep you warm in the winter months. The December 10 event will begin with an educational session led by the CGHC Herbalists, and will continue through the afternoon as we chop the ingredients, combine them in glass jars and, finally, bury them in the ground to brew for thirty days. This is a great chance to experience some hands-on learning of herbal remedies past & present. People of all ages are welcome to this event. Bring a cutting board and knife and a snack or drink to share, or just yourselves.
Then on Saturday, January 7th from 3pm—Until… We will reconvene to dig up the cider, squeeze it out and have a potluck dinner. We will dig up the cider at the garden and caravan from there to our dinner (location TBA). Bring a dish to share, an 8 oz jar with a lid to bring home some cider, and warm clothes.
