Foraging For Medicinal & Edible Plants  $20 per Person

With
         Kristina Peebles
          Lifetime Forager  & Certified Herbalist

My name is Kristina, I live in New Hampshire.  I am a constant student of Herbalism, and I have been foraging and learning about edible and medicinal plants since I was a child.  I graduated from Moore Farm Herbal Apprentice Program in 2019 and have since continued my education with Wintergreen Botanicals, Herbal Academy and Commonwealth Herbs.  In that time I  have been slowly growing my own herbal apothecary and discovering what kind of herbalist I want to be. 

 

My training and focus is  identifying, harvesting and processing medicinal plants.   I also find great value in collaborating with others in the herbal community, as I feel each person has their own strengths and unique perspectives when it comes to herbal medicine.  Learning about plant medicine is a lifelong endeavor, but I will share what I have learned, and I look forward to hearing about your experiences with plants as well. 

 

All of these foraging walks will be outside, please dress appropriately for the weather.  It is recommended you dress in layers.  Please feel free to bring a notebook, pen, and your camera! Also bring a water bottle. (you may re-fill at the shoppe!  We have excellent well water that is tested yearly!).  All-add on classes take place 15 minutes after the end of the foraging walk and must be signed up in advance!  This is to ensure we have enough materials!  The add-on classes are an additional $20 per person. Please see Below the list of Add-on classes!
