Second Sundays: Cooking with Herbs


Cooking with Herbs is the next installment of our Second Sunday series.

Come join Catering By Design and Barefoot Botanticals for a wellness workshop and cooking demo at the Mütter Museum. 

10:00-10:20am – Lecture from Linda Shanahan of Barefoot Botanicals about the medicinal benefits of herbs
10:20-11:00am – Cooking Demo with Catering By Design

Take some time after the workshop to unwind in the beautiful bounty of the Benjamin Rush Medicinal Plant Garden. Then, peruse our peculiar Hutchinson alcove–you might just find yourself down the rabbit hole and reading about The Medical Oddities of Alice: Potions, Poisons, & Pathology.

ABOUT Linda Shanahan, MSN, RN of Barefoot Botanticals

Linda is an herbalist with a foundation of knowledge that sprouted in the forests of Oregon in 1999, learning about forest ecology and the medicine that it can offer.  In 2008, after moving east, studying nursing, working in critical care, feeling lost and in need of community, Linda and her husband Eric started farming organically in Doylestown, PA, and focusing on certified organic medicinal herbs.  Linda believes to achieve health, we need to find ways to re-establish our broken connections with our wild and beautiful planet, starting with what grows beneath our feet.
