Wildcrafting Intensive in Methow Valley, June 2022

Join us for a weekend of wildcrafting and plant identification in the beautiful Methow Valley located east of the Cascades. This is an exciting place for herbalists to visit because it is home to many powerful herbal medicines that are not available on the west side of the Cascades. It is also a quiet and peaceful place to relax and unwind.  June 4-5. More

Growing and Wildcrafting Apprenticeship Program

This is a hands-on experiential program where we grow and process a wide array of medicinal plants over three seasons. Students become intimate with growing, medicinal uses, and processing techniques. Additionally, students learn how to make a variety of preparations including tinctures, teas, salves, lotions, and hydrosols. Wildcrafting excursions are woven throughout. More

Applications of Herbal Medicine

These workshops are designed for herbalists interested in expanding their skills in herbal medicine to support the wellness of individuals, friends, family or community members. Each day has a focused topic and provides students with an informative range of considerations and skills for clinical practice. Students will have opportunities to deepen their relationship with the healing power of plants. Come to one session or to all four. More

Foundations of Herbalism

This immersive nine-month program provides a foundation in bioregional and western herbalism. The focus is on experiential learning, spending time outside with the plants, combined with classroom-style learning. We believe that the best teachers are the plants themselves and we strive to guide the building of your relationship with them in a way that suits each student. More
