Medicine Swap! @ Railyard Apothecary
Feb 9 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Come share your hand-made herbal products/medicines.

This is a wonderful way to share medicine you may have made more than enough of, in trade for the quality products of your fellow local herbalists to build up your home apothecary.

Here’s how it works:

  • Bring any homemade herbal products to trade (or give)

These might be individually packaged blends or products
OR jars full of tinctures, infused oils, and quantities of dried (or fresh) herbs to barter.

  • Label each item with ingredients and instructions
  • Bring plenty of your own clean bottles, jars, and baggies to package up tradables brought in bulk.

We’ll provide space and tools to bottle and label
(you can also purchase tincture bottles from Railyard Apothecary.)

    • Then trade away!​

The more the merrier!  Tell your friends and colleagues! Mid-winter is a great time to redistribute the previous seasons bounty before a busy new growing season arrives!
