Our classes combine scientific facts and whimsical folklore gathered from studying herbs for over 20 years. Presentations are easy to understand and personal, with hands-on learning, for both beginners and experienced herbalists. Classes always include herbal tea, lots of samples and take-home information to continually inspire you to use herbs in your daily life.
Our classes are scheduled by request from May - October. Contact Rachel to set a date/time. There is no minimum number of students required. We believe that if you want to learn about herbs, you shouldn't have to wait until a certain number of other people also have the interest and time to take a class.
Contact Rachel if you'd like to schedule a presentation or class for your group, club, organization or event.
