A cup of tea can be medicine for the mind, body and soul. We could all use a good dose of that kind of medicine these days.

During this class, you will take home all the knowledge, publications and inspiring ideas needed to successfully and enjoyably cultivate delicious tea plants that also feed birds and pollinators. We will meander and create simple drinks by blending freshly picked herbs.

Please bring a personal cup or thermos for drinking hot tea.
