Herbal Studies

Regina Compernolle has been studying and using herbs for health for over 30 years. She will share her practical knowledge with you. She offers classes, an apprenticeship program and independent study.

Receive hands-on experience making medicine and learn to support your own health and the health of your family and pets naturally.

For those interested in a deepening connection with nature our Plant Shamanism class affords the opportunity to develop an intuitive rapport with our green relations.

We have redesigned our programs to incorporate online learning and small group outdoor classes.

while we weather the Covid-19 health protocol.
