You will learn techniques to help you engage in creating your own food and medicine from a variety of sources in and around your own home. Techniques and methods that work on any environment and in various seasons will be discussed and demonstrated. Learn how to contribute to fresh, ready nutrition for yourself and your family. Learn how plants can provide you with many medicines that strengthen the body and the soul. Registered students who attend the course receive lunch on each class day. Daily Schedule: 8:30am – 5:00pm Course Fee: Early bird: $225 After June 30: $275
