Please join certified herbalist and flower essence practitioner Courtney Hall this winter for an 18-hour Herbal Studies Program for beginners! Winter on Long Island is a perfect time of year to dive deep and learn about the many facets of plant medicine and self-healing. We will stay warm and busy this winter crafting teas, tinctures, oils, and salves in our certified kitchen!
PRIMARY TOPICS OF FOCUS:
energy and flower medicine, sitting in meditation with several plants
making a proper root tea called a decoction
herbs for building the immune system

Courtney will guide you through a wholesome, joyful, and hands-on approach to living a more mindful and healthy life by means of connecting with plants as food and medicine. This series will focus heavily on self-care and the importance of sourcing, preparing, and taking the time to treat and cook oneself nourishing therapeutic remedies. You will take home teas, tinctures, oils, salves, and recipes, but even more importantly you will leave knowing how to better care for yourself utilizing simple, all-natural practices that rest beneath your very feet.

INTERMEDIATE HERBAL STUDIES SERIES
NEXT SESSION DATES TBD!
*for students with prior experience in herbal studies*
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, and making medicine. 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 study in more depth. We will focus greatly on 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 practicing these new skills.
(Includes $100 materials fee; you will take home several plants, a garden box, and an abundance of plant medicine.)
EARTH IMMERSION SERIES
NEXT SESSION DATES TBD!
Join certified Herbalist and flower essence practitioner Courtney Hall as you plant yourself into earth and plant-based healing. You will meet once a month for 5 months, and conclude with a personal medicine walk at month 6. Each class will take place in the woods or on the farm and includes moderate hiking, sun exposure, and an open heart!

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.
