2018 Class Schedule

After creating many products, years of studying with master herbalists and essential oil specialists, and countless visits into the woods and fields studying plants, I am inspired to teach. I want to share what I have learned from these master teachers and give you the tools to work with the plants. Plants not only heal the physical body but they heal our souls.

My goal is to give you a foundation of knowledge so you can work with plants and essential oils to benefit you and your animals.

Some of the best healing can come from working or sitting in a garden. I go to my garden and work with the plants to get rejuvenated. I sit with my essential oils and let their aromas infuse my senses; I am at peace.

When I walk in the woods and fields during the winter trying to identify the plants in their dormant phases, I whisper to them, "Looking forward to seeing you in spring," just as I look forward to you joining me for classes this spring. ~ Frances

Working With The Plants - Divided Into Two Learning Experiences - Packed with hands-on work with the plants to help satisfy all your botanical desires.

Each class you will discover new plants and essential oils. You can choose to take one class or both classes.

My goal is to give you the basics and guide you along the way to the relationship you wish to have with the plants. Maybe you will be the neighborhood herbalist or want to take your studies into a specific area such as woman’s health, men’s health, animal health, shamanism, traditional chinese medicine, or product creation.

I want you to learn the beauty of the plants. I want you to see how they can enhance your everyday life by making your medicines, finding comfort sitting or working in a garden. I hope you will notice all the plants around you and feel their energy when you are walking in nature. Plants bring peace to our lives, and they are very medicinal. I hope to enhance your connection to mother earth and teach you to help her keep the plants healthy so they can keep us healthy.

By enhancing your connection to the earth, we can protect our environment and keep the plants as a vital source in our lives.

Class One - June 23:
  • Starts in the garden enjoying an herbal walk and harvesting plants. You will learn how to dry these herbs for your personal “herbal medicine cabinet”, make fresh herbal tinctures and oils with the following solvents: alcohol (i.e., brandy), vinegar, honey, glycerine, almond oil… What you will enjoy during this class: creating an herbal tea (tisane) and learn when to decoct or infuse a tisane, create a hand cream and salt scrub using essential oils and learn how to make herbal tinctures from dried herbs.

Class Two - September 29:
  • We will discuss herbs and roots that will support you throughout the winter and into early spring. In this class, you will learn how to harvest a root from the garden and make a root tincture from it. You will also create a cleansing essential oil room spray. (This is a great prep class for our Winter Health Workshop on November 4th.)

Come and learn from the plants: They have so much to teach you.
