This program is hands on and experiential in nature, focusing on permaculture practices on the land at Wildroot Botanicals, growing medical plants, and processing the herbs we grow into medicine throughout the growing season.

Three different instructors will be leading: Permaculturists, Heather Tizai and Reisha Beck will each teach one Monday per month. On the remaining Mondays, Leslie Lekos will lead in the medicine making components of the course.

Permaculture Description

Participants will learn about how to prepare garden beds and cultivate healthy, organic soils through permaculture and biodynamic techniques.  Appropriate tillage and proper use of tools will be explored.  We will learn how to increase soil productivity by making and using nutrient dense compost, applying soil amendments when necessary, and spreading biodynamic preparations.  Mulching techniques and cover cropping will be implemented to reduce weed competition, retain soil moisture, and to quickly transform new growing areas into fertile ground.  Participants will also learn how to use effective companion planting, perennial food systems, and pollinator plantings to create restorative, ecologically diverse landscapes that produce high yields of food and medicine crops. 768w, 1024w" sizes="(max-width: 483px) 100vw, 483px" />

Medicine Making Description On medicine making days we will be harvesting, processing and bottling herbal medicines for the Wildroot Botanicals Apothecary.  Students will participate and witness the whole process of medicine making from harvesting, processing and packaging for a variety of preparations including tinctures, teas, salves, lotions and hydrosols.

We appreciate participants to be reliable, committed and clear in their goal to expand their herbal knowledge. We also like students to be open to doing tasks that need to be done, while trusting we will do our best to offer a well rounded wealth of information. 225w" sizes="(max-width: 376px) 100vw, 376px" />
