Education is one of our goals. We believe that working with herbs everyday improves the quality of life as we age, our longevity, and our vibrancy. The best way to do that is to learn how to integrate herbs into your daily life in simple, real ways. Our classes are designed for those new to herbalism and for those who would like to enhance their health naturally with traditional herbal wisdom.

salves for summer
Summer brings new challenges in the form of bumps, bruises and itchy bug bites from our adventures out-of-doors. In this class, we will make a few salves to help you heal naturally that are safe for children of all ages.
After talking about a few key healing herbs and their traditional uses, we will make an herbal infused oil, an herbal first aid salve, and a natural salve for itchy skin from bug bites and poison ivy.
delicious homemade soda
Homemade sodas are refreshing, delicious and easy to make. Learn how to make your own sodas with the fresh ingredients that you choose. This class allows you to take back control of what you are drinking. No more high fructose corn syrup for you and your family!
Join herbalist and home fermenter Saundra Kamman, of HerbN Tea, to learn two different methods for creating your own personal sodas. We will taste a few sodas made with fresh fruit, herbs and a variety of sweeteners (including honey, agave and turbinado or brown sugar). We will discuss the benefits of each and then make a soda to take home.
