community workshops

Enter a fun cozy space with warm welcoming people to celebrate the plants, remember our inherent connection with them & learn ways we can integrate their healing wisdom into our daily lives.

You are welcome to attend one class, many or participate in our 7 month group apprenticeship in

plant magic and practical herbal wisdom




The Experience:

Our workshops and apprentice groups are hands-on, interactive, community herbal learning experiences where people meet the plants with their senses, intuition, and intellect to foster deep sustainable plant and human relationships in a non competitive, compassionate space where learning is fun and we are all teachers and students learning from one another and the plants!

Most of our workshops and group meetings take place at The Yarrow School of Collective Wellness, a cozy and creative workshop space nestled in a working urban medicinal herb garden near downtown Hood River.

Some classes take place on farms, hiking trails and wild places.

Apprenticeship:

Our seven month group apprenticeship in plant magic and practical herbal wisdom takes place each year, from April through October.

9 plant enthusiasts meet one full Saturday per month for seven months to dive into the amazing world of plants together through our embodied intuition, senses and intellect.

This experience is focused on developing deep relationships with plants and learning hands on application of folk medicine herbal remedies into our daily lives.
