YOUR TEACHER:

SIA MENSAH, herbalist, has had a lifelong love affair with wild plants as food and medicine. She understands “rewilding” as the process of tapping into ancestral wisdom about living harmoniously with nature and sees herbalism as an essential part of that process. Throughout this course, she’ll teach you the underlying principles of plant medicine and guide you to awaken your intuition so that you can listen to, and learn from the language of nature.

We’ve partnered with Saw Mill Herb Farm in Western MA to provide fresh organic herbs for medicine making through the Spring, Summer & Fall. You’ll learn about the plants you receive and how to work with them through making tinctures, vinegars, oils, salves, teas & infusion. Come away with an experiential foundation in herbal medicine, a renewed relationship with yourself and with the natural world. Many of our classes will be outdoors in Prospect Park to work with medicinal plants in the urban wild. This course is for absolute beginners to intermediate level herbalists.
