Fun and Effective Ways to Learn About Using and Growing and Knowing Herbs
Both for beginners and experienced herb growers and users!
The 2023/2024 Season!
Midsummer Farm continues its evolution and its land's productivity with herbs.
And we have some new educational opportunities planned as well as bringing back regular favorites!
Taking Herbal Classes Here
Is a great herbal experience, and you'll acquire a wealth of practical experience as well as knowledge on how to start using herbs in your daily life or to address and prevent health issues. Come prepared to absorb lots of info! I do arrange the class days in ways that I hope allow for the best absorption and retention of the info and you go home with thorough handouts that you can use for future reference.
Midsummer Farm Herbal Guild Membership
The Midsummer Farm Herbal Guild is a group of herb-loving people who will be meeting here on Friday afternoons to work on a huge variety of herbal projects - really hands-on... Guild members are basically working members of Midsummer Farm and a big part of the herbal structure of the farm.
We'll spend much time creating the herbal medicinal products and propagating the plants that we sell.
I also like ot think of the Guild Meetings as "Special Projects in Herbalism!"
Join Us for an intensive Herbal Season at Midsummer Farm
Our Living with Herbs Course consists of 10 full-day sessions and approaches herbs in chronological order - an herbal year - propagating, sowing, growing, harvesting, storing, making of products, and how and why you would use the herbs.
I know many people who have an instinctual drive to collect herb plants into an herb garden, but then just don't make the most out of the herbs' presence in their lives - this course addresses that - providing lots of inspiration, information and experience.
Tree Herbalism 3-day Workshop
A 3-day workshop focusing on using trees as medicines. Trees are majestic and powerful plants - they could be seen as the old souls of the plant world. Brimming with amazing energy, trees offer healing that is intrinsically and beautifully distinct from other herbs.
We will be discussing the classic tree herbs as well as other locally growing trees that can be used medicinally. We will be exploring how to use them in traditional herbalism as well as from an energetic perspective. We'll also be exploring trees from the perspective of their ancient role and relationship with human beings.
Workshop is spread across the 3 main time periods of seasonal tree growth.
Timing is 11 am to 2 pm
Takes place on Sundays in 2024:
March 24th 2024
May 5th 2024
June 23rd 2024
An Herbal Community
Not only do you gain a solid understanding and plan for using herbs in supporting the health and well-being of your household, but you also become a part of our Midsummer Farm Herbal Community.
Herbal Students are invited to various gatherings and events... And they get to shop our plant sales early! Over the years, we are becoming an ever-evolving and developing supportive and fun group of local and passionate herbalists.
