Sweet Earth Co., a sustainable, biodynamic and organic flower farm and design studio in Pound Ridge, will host an Herbal Teas for Wellness workshop from 7 to 9 p.m. on February 27. Participants will learn about the healing energetics of herbs, sample herbal teas and create their own tea blend.

Topics will include the history of herbalism; using taste as a tool to understand herbal energetics; herbal measurements; harvesting, drying and storing herbs; herbal tisanes and infusions; and herbal blends.

Sweet Earth Co. grows specialty cut flowers and herbs and offers floral and landscape design services. In addition to designing flowers for weddings, events and businesses, Sweet Earth has a seasonal flower CSA and sells wholesale to local markets and floral designers. Owner Xenia D’Ambrosi offers workshops and educational events throughout the year, teaching sustainable gardening and floral design. 

“Being around flowers and connecting with nature have the power to bring joy, inspiration and healing. That’s why we do what we do, and we love it,” D’Ambrosi says. “Having our hands in the soil, cultivating blooms, makes us truly happy. We enjoy every magical step, from seed to vase or centerpiece. But watching how our flowers light up people’s faces—well, that’s the real magic.  We use sustainable and biodynamic practices to grow the most beautiful flowers and herbs, as well as botanical teas and products that help soothe, cleanse and invigorate.”

Cost: $45. Location: Sweet Earth Co., 20A Salem Rd., Pound Ridge, NY. For tickets and info, visit Sweet Earth Co. - Pound Ridge, NY.
