Upcoming Herbal Class

Herbs to Tincture

Although winter is not my favorite season (no flowers to gather!), I do have to admit it provides a welcome downtime. The weather is too cold to spend much time outdoors and my garden has gone into hibernation until spring, which means I can turn my attention towards organizing my home, catching up on my reading, and writing on this blog more!

The thing I’m most excited about this winter though is an online class I’ll be taking, starting next Monday the 25th, through the Herbal Academy of New England.

I’ve wanted to take herbal classes forever, but just didn’t have the time or resources needed to drive to the nearest center offering them; since it’s almost two hours from my house. I love that this class is self-paced and can be taken in the comfort of my own warm & cozy home!

I can’t wait to share some of the recipes and information that I’m learning along the way, along with my usual projects and such. If you’d like, you can also join me in taking this class! (Let me know if you sign up, so I can look for you in the member forums.)

For more information on the program, click over HERE to the Herbal Academy of New England’s site. (affiliate link) It’s labeled as an intermediate class, but there’s no prerequisite and basics will be covered in the first unit to catch up anyone who is brand new to herbs.

Even if the class isn’t something you’re interested in, you might enjoy exploring some of the informative articles on their blog. These are a few of my favorites:

Hawthorn Winter Heart Tea:

Quick & Simple Ederberry Cold Syrup:

In other bloggy news: Over the next few weeks, you’ll be seeing some extra articles being posted as I move them over here from other little web sites I was dabbling in. I think it will be easier to house everything under one roof!


Note: Some of the links in this post and on my blog are affiliate links. That means if you click on them and make a purchase, I earn a small commission. This costs you nothing extra, but does help pay for the costs of running a web site. Thank you! :)

  1. This sounds fun and I look forward to your posts-I am off to check out the links too Kathy

  2. Yes, it seems like only yesterday we were gathering our resources in readiness for all the upcoming spring and summer projects, Jan! I welcome the downtime (wishful thinking, perhaps?!) that winter can provide and I don’t mind the rain at all. The white stuff? Well, that is a different story….
