Time to get dirty! This hands-on 4-week series with certified herbalist Courtney Hall is an extension of the 6-week beginners series. We will be outdoors for each class, planting, harvesting, digging, making medicine, and connecting deeply to the living spirits of the plant kingdom. As we will be working with and learning from several plants growing abundantly at Sang Lee Farms, each student will also choose one plant to connect with on a deeper, more personal level. We will focus greatly on plant-spirit communication, (sitting in meditation with several live plants), sustainable harvesting, and intuitive medicine making. Students will also take it a step further this series, learning how to identify and treat certain ailments in one another. Here students will be paired up, and each week will spend some time healing one another from a clinical and intuitive position.
(Includes $100 materials fee; you will take home several plants, a garden box, and an abundance of plant medicine.)

Karen Lee BS, MBA, RN
As owner of Sang Lee Farms for over 35 years I have become passionate about the food we grow, and how to enjoy vibrant health eating fresh seasonal foods. Incorporating the fresh organic vegetables from our farm into specialty prepared foods for our retail shop has only added to that knowledge and passion. My background in health care working with sick and dying patients as a registered nurse has particularly convinced me of the importance of food as the foundation of our health and well being. To educate and share this passion with others is now my focus and mission.
