I enjoy sharing my knowledge of herbal medicine.  Due to the health risks involved with holding in-person classes during this infectious COVID-19 time, I have converted some of my favorite classes into instructional videos, listed below.  

Simply click on the title of the class you want to watch and it should connect you to the YouTube video. 

If that doesn't work, please let me know.   

Also, if there is another topic you would like to see offered, please let me know.  I enjoy preparing for new classes!

Increased attention to herbal remedies has some people wondering what it’s all about.

This introductory class offers an overview of folk herbalism and information about

the many health benefits derived from simple herbal remedies.


Learn the basic techniques of making your own herbal remedies (such as tinctures, vinegars, oils,

and ointments), along with a few suggestions of what you should have in your own home herbal

apothecary.  Making your own herbal remedies is simple and inexpensive - and so much fun!

Would you like to just walk out to your backyard or patio to gather some herbs for teas or

medicinal preparations?  This class focuses on the cultivation of medicinal plants in your own yard

and gardens. 

Inspired by the idea of victory gardens during both world wars, a Pandemic Garden consists of plants

whose medicinal properties support the body's ability to resist and/or recover from disease.
