If you have ever dreamed of starting your herbal education or simply wanted a thorough refresher, this may be the perfect opportunity to join us for Beginning with Herbs!

We are currently planning on Zoom classes we are excited that having virtual classes will allow many to attend who may not have been able to before.

In this unprecedented time, it is comforting to know that the herbs and plants are always here to teach and support us and this course is a wonderful way to empower yourself with this knowledge under the experienced guidance of renowned herbalist Jane Bothwell.


Eight Wednesday evenings and two weekend herb walks and you too can share the excitement of herbal wisdom with your family and friends. Learn to make herbal formulas and preparations such as tinctures, liniments, salves, oils, and much more!

Make your own herbal first aid kit and enjoy the many hands-on activities this class has to offer in the comfort of your own space. This is a great refresher course for advanced herb students and a wonderful place to start for those just beginning their herbal journey.

Meets via Zoom one evening a week for 8 weeks. This format could possibly shift to “in person” based on the status of safety.

Two small group in person herb walks are included.

**Herb Walks will take place in two small groups from the class, each being two hours.
Herb Walks will also be on Zoom if we have out-of-area students.
