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 2016... 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)

Also, if you'd like a "preview" of sorts on how I teach, there's an hour long interview I did with John Gallagher of HerbMentor.com here.  And, there's a slew of youtube videos 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...

(more classes will be added as I get all the details finalized...)

Interested in hosting a class?

I'm always happy to share what I've learned in new settings with new people (especially in the sunny tropics)… if your interested in having my offer herbs classes in your area, just holler and we'll figure out what might work…
