Come to learn a new/old skill! 

Tyler State Park is partnering with Nichole Gerding of Thankful Sage Farm School to bring you ‘Hands-On Heritage.’

In each of these programs, we will discuss local history in context of the season, and try our hand at some heritage skills to take home to share with our families.  

We are offering two options for classes- a Monday evening session whichallows older children, 12 and up, to join their parent/guardian (please note, we cannot be responsible for your child) and an adults only Tuesday morning session. 


What: Fire Cider

We will be discussing the folk remedy called Fire Cider. This health tonic is made with apple cider vinegar, and we will discuss the origins and benefits. A demonstration will show how we can prepare this at home, and each class member will take home a pre made bottle of their own. All materials supplied.
