WILD EDIBLES & MEDICINAL HERBS

APPRENTICESHIP

cultivating resiliency, relationship, rituals and connection with the cycles of nature

One Saturday / Month from 10am-4pm

 March - November 2022

Join me on my homestead in the hilltowns of Western Massachusetts to intensively study local medicine and wild edibles. We'll discover how each season correlates with the plants available for holistic health and eating what nature provides. 

Beginning late winter we'll meet each month to learn about seasonally available plants and how to incorporate them into our home kitchens. Each class we’ll spend time as a group grounding into the sacred space of plants, wander the woods and gardens, and make medicines with what we forage on the land. Over the course of the nine months, apprentices will build their own apothecaries and fill their kitchen cabinets with tinctures, salves, salt scrubs, syrups, vinegars, oxymels, teas, medicinal ghee, fermented foods, wild mushrooms, elixirs and more. 

 This is a great opportunity to sink your feet into the Earth’s wisdom, slow down with a group of plants lovers in all the elements, and empower one another with the foundations of wild edibles and herbal medicine.
