Living Classroom at Dogwood Forest
Come discover herbs through all five of your senses as well as your brain! Classes are held in Dogwood Forest which is 40 acres in Kansas City, KS featuring several microclimates. Diverse moist woodland habitat features many medicinal herbs and wildlife species. The boggy frog pond features plant that like a wet environment. Natural indigenous prairie is being developed. The medicinal herb garden features plants we commonly use for food and medicine.
As an apprentice you'll study the work of internationally known herbalists. You'll receive hands-on experience identifying local herbs in all their stages and making medicine from plants you collect and learn to support your own health and the health of your family and pets naturally.
Apprentices will get an opportunity to get to know the plants as individuals by working in the gardens and the forest.
