Dandelion Herbal Center-indoor classroomDandelion Herbal Center offers classes and field trips for herb students ranging from the beginner interested primarily in basic herbal crafting techniques to advanced students seeking to enhance their careers in complementary medicine.

Jane’s lifelong love affair with medicinal plants finds a perfect setting here in the magnificent coastal mountains of Northern California. From pristine tidepools to lush wetlands and the sacred majesty of local redwoods, we are blessed with a glorious abundance of herbs to admire and study.

Jane Bothwell has lovingly photographed over 40 plants, carefully labelled them with their common as well as botanical names.  Our hope is that you enjoy seeing and identifying the many plants that you encounter in your outdoor adventures.  You are encouraged to research and learn the many characteristics and benefits of each one.   CLICK HERE TO BEGIN YOUR VIRTUAL HERB WALK!

The school is located adjacent to Jane’s home near Arcata, California. When Jane herself isn’t teaching, she hosts an exciting array of guest teachers.
