michigan herb classes & workshops
(well, michigan and a few other states here & there...)


Rootstalk Festival, Salem, Oregon... photo by 7Song   September 2011

This is a list of my scheduled walks & classes, into 2017... of course; more to come.
 
Please check back every now and again... I'm still working on next years schedule and more herb classes will undoubtedly pop up here and there, in different areas throughout Michigan or elsewhere. If you'd like to be added to an email list that gives information on my workshops, or to inquire about other stuff I can or might do, just send an email or call me at (248) 238-8733. 

Have questions about classes? 
I've got answers to frequently asked questions (like times, weather exceptions and such)
here. 

Also, if you'd like a "preview" of sorts on how I teach, there's a slew of youtube videos you can check out here.

Want to host a class, walk or workshop?
I'm always happy to travel and spend time talking plants, and can speak on a wide array of herbal topics, from a couple hours to a day to a weekend.  If you're interested in having me offer herb classes in your neck of the woods (or tropical beaches), just let me know...
