For thousands of years, people have been harvesting herbal medicines from their home gardens for basic family needs. Become part of this evolving tradition using the Esalen garden and wild lands as a classroom. This is a dynamic and hands-on introduction to the art and practical application of garden herbalism. We will spend over half of our time outdoors, where we’ll harvest common herbs and discuss their uses and cultivation.
