Come find your tribe with us this summer!
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 be provided with all the medicine making materials needed for the program and each new apprentice will receive a handmade cutting board and a Wild Women notebook to hold all your plant journey notes in.
Come learn about the seasonal plants that grow in our area, meet new people and create community with other local plant lovers.
Summer Program starts June 15th
Classes meet every Saturday from 10-5 in Puyallup.
Summer program is from June 15th to August 17th.
I’m excited to announce two special guest instructors this season!
Sara Collins from Moon Goddess Magick Apothecary will be showing us how to safely forage our local seaweeds and use them in our kitchen, skincare and herbal wellness practices.
Ginger Rivera from Nightshade Botanicals will be teaching us all about deadly and poisonous plants and how to incorporate them safely into magick and medicine.
I’m thrilled that these two beautiful women are coming to teach and I hope you all enjoy their unique knowledge.
