Participants can expect to meet new medicinal plants, learn about their uses and, in many cases, gather some of them. We teach folks to treat plant communities with respect and to harvest sustainably, and we also impart to students the best way to prepare each of these herbs as medicine. Small groups ensure plenty of access to the teaching staff for questions and comments.
Trips generally run for 3 to 5 days and include wholesome vegetarian meals. Lodging is basic: camping and occasionally cabins are to be expected. We will do our best to accommodate those with special needs: please contact us for more details.
Days are full and fun! As well as class time there is the processing of the gathered plant material to complete. You will leave with a new or renewed understanding of wildcrafting, and dirty fingernails.
Costs vary by trip, and are by sliding scale. Past trips have cost about $350 to $650.
Price includes: Food, camping, instruction in plant identification, wildcrafting and ethics, medicine making and Materia Medica, as well as some supplies. Supplies we provide are honey, oil, isopropyl alcohol; the plants we make medicine with. Participants provide their own alcohol and Jars.
We will updated this page with info about the upcoming trips.
