Workshops and Courses

We have been teaching and giving workshops, courses and tours for more than a decade.  We teach what we know through our own personal experience of trying to live more lightly on the planet.  Bonnie has also studied with the Dominion Herbal College which is the oldest established herbal school of medicine is North America.  We strongly believe that the process of learning is just as important as the knowledge gained.  For what is knowledge without wisdom?  We aim to transfer information into illumination.  Besides learning something new, a workshop is a place to meet kindred spirits, enjoy the moment and eat great food.  All our workshops and courses are in small groups with an emphasis on hands on learning and person to person interaction.  We host workshops on the farm and in the forest  but will travel if you wish to organize an event.
