UPCOMING CLASSES & EVENTS
SPRING WORKSHOP SERIES
I'm excited to offer an array of online workshops this spring. Each workshop topic is divided into two separate classes (one per week) in an effort to provide accessible "bite-sized" classes that fit into your busy schedule.
Sliding-scale cost is $15-20 per class, $25 per 2-class module, or $100 for all classes in the spring series. Your contribution helps support my continued work as an herbalist, and allows me to offer free services to those who cannot afford to pay. If you are interested in attending a class, please email me to sign up and receive login information. If cost is a barrier, email me to discuss flexible payment options.
