Herbal Medicine Making Workshops and Herb Identification Walks
Special Rates

How would you like to learn to identify many of the free medicinal and edible plants that grow wild all around your house, learn when and how to properly harvest these herbs and then go into your kitchen and prepare high quality herbal medicine?

This is an opportunity to learn every step of medicine making from scratch, which will begin with wildcrafting for your herbs to actually making your own extracts (tinctures), fluid extracts, infusions, decoctions, syrups, and other therapeutic products such as salves, infused oils, and skin     creams.  Linda will discuss identification and growth cycles, cultivation, ethical wildcrafting, harvesting at the optimum season, preservation for long term storage and the medicinal            usage and value of these commonly available wild plants, many of which are well researched      herbal medicines that are sold throughout the world. 

Come only for the one day workshop or stay a weekend or better yet, treat yourself to a              week in a two bedroom, two bath secluded luxury cabin with all the amenities of home              sweet home.  The cabin is only a short walk to the Appalachian Trail.  You'll have the quiet           and beauty of Roan Mountain, one of the highest peaks in the eastern United States with the    largest natural stand of rhododendron in the world or you can enjoy the amenities of Roan      Mountain State Park, which offers 25 miles of hiking trails, trout fishing, day/evening tennis, swimming pool, volleyball and game room.  We're only a short ride to the Western North         Carolina ski slopes of Beech and Sugar mountains, shopping, fine restaurants, Grandfather Mountain, Linville Falls, white water rafting, and much more.
