Come find your tribe with us this Fall!
Wild Women Apprenticeships are 10-week seasonal programs that cover a wide range of wildcrafting and herbalism basics. NO EXPERIENCE IS NEEDED for these programs - you’ll be taught all the foundational knowledge needed to forage for plant medicine and create a well rounded home apothecary! You will also be provided with everything you need to make your plant medicine! The only things you will need to provide are your own foraging tools, folding chair and something to write with!
Come learn about the seasonal plants that grow in our area, meet new people and create community with other local plant lovers! Fall season is a beautiful time here in the PNW to discover all the abundant plants and mushrooms that help us with digestion, immunity and stress in order to better prepare us for the upcoming winter and holiday season!
Fall Program starts September 14th
Classes meet every Saturday from 10-5 in Puyallup, WA.
Fall program is from September 14th to November 16th.
In addition to the weekly seasonal plant teachings, I am excited to announce there we will also be a Plant Dyeing Workshop October 12th with Jennette Nielsen, a fabulous local plant worker, healer and magic maker! You can read more about her here.
