Harvesting & Making



Our main focus is on the plants that are native to our climate in Kansas City, as well as our many gardens with medicinal herbs, flowers and trees.

We have 40 acres of forest and gardens where you can get to know our herbs intimately in all phases of development, learn responsible wildcrafting and participate in a community that shares knowledge and resources.

The goal of this class is to offer practical hands-on experience to herbalists of all levels. This class is held outdoors. You'll need to dress for the weather. We may occasionally need to reschedule or have class inside because of serious weather but will accommodate schedules by providing multiple make-up options.


Committed to conscious living and developing our own story on the sacred path

Our classes don’t have a linear structure.

We will teach you information, such as identification, energetics, medicinal uses and more, but more importantly we teach processes that deepen as the years progress.

You don’t complete one year and graduate to different content the next. 


We've had students re-enrolling in classes for years, developing their knowledge, eventually teaching or helping grow and harvest herbs.
