  • Wilderness survival
  • To expand or prepare for botanical studies

The day is divided among lecture and discussion, hands-on practice with harvesting and making remedies, walks to meet plants in their homes, and time to cultivate and reconnect with nature’s wisdom.

Our Bioregional Herbalism Course will empower you with nourishing herbal knowledge, the skills to experience the world in a new way, and the beginning of a personal herbal apothecary!
