Finding Inspiration in Every Turn
Do you want to share botanical folk tales under the stars with a community of wildcrafters and wanderers?
As the smoke stains our skin, the dirt under our nails from a day of digging, under the gaze of a thousand stars…
We awaken what it truly means to practice Herbalism.
3 Day Herbalism Retreat
November 1st - 3rd 2024
A retreat that focuses re-invigorating the medicine of the moment - a herbal experience that you feel in your bones, and carry with you always.
Three days of hands-on learning in the garden, herbal lessons, movement practices, story-time, home-made food, and companionship with like-minded folk…
We invite you to nest with us, learn with us, ground with us.
