LEARN HOW TO HEAL YOURSELF AND OTHERS IN CREATIVE COLLABORATION WITH MEDICINE PLANTS.

Over 8 months of in-depth, hands-on exploration with fresh and dried herbs to craft your very own herbal apothecary for health, vitality, and beauty. 

Learn how to apply these medicines to ease common ailments, including allergies, coughs, colds, flu, muscular discomfort, stress, insomnia, skin irritations, wounds, and more.

Each month, you'll bring home herbal remedies you've made in class, plus materials and instructions to practice with at home.

We'll connect with plants on the spiritual level, harvest with integrity and sustainability, and identify local plants in the wilds of Prospect Park.

Fresh organically grown herbs for medicine making will be supplied by Sawmill Herb Farm CSA.

This course is for a wide range of levels from absolute beginners to intermediate herbal students.

What Is Sliding Scale?
We offer all of our community offerings and some private sessions by Sliding Scale. 

We believe everyone is entitled to heal their wounds so they can thrive; we also believe that the wellness and healing practitioners deserve to make a living wage.  In order to make this possible, we ask you to pay as much as you can, so those who might not be able to pay as much can still receive their healing session - this is the idea behind 'paying it forward'.  We are all in this together, and we choose to do our best to take care of one another.  

Thank you in advance!
