Our classes combine scientific facts and whimsical folklore gathered from studying herbs for over 25 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 can be scheduled by request here at the farm 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.

Classes are also scheduled throughout the year in local communities - Check the Events Page for upcoming classes and workshops.
