Plant ID Hikes, Urban Walks, and Yard Assessments
I love taking people out into the wilderness — urban or traditional — one-on-one or in small groups to teach plant identification. I am 100% dog friendly and happy to come to you or customize the class to your needs, whether you want to make a field tincture, learn about plants for survival purposes, or want to explore herbal smoking blends and plant spirit meditation. Rates vary depending on group size and other factors, and transportation is available in some cases also for an additional fee. Inquire at

Private talks and presentations for indoor events and educational clients are also available.

 Herbs have so much to offer us, not just food and medicine but also as powerful energy healers and wise teachers! Each species has a different area of expertise. Some plant spirits help us cultivate self-acceptance within, while others teach compassion and healthy boundaries, heal the heart, protect us, or ignite our psychic talents. In this engaging and enlightening class, we will cover the metaphysical properties of 12 plant spirits, including flowers, trees and weeds, and go on a powerful guided meditation to work with them together! $25 at the door

    • Just saw your post! Yes, many, depending on the specific way you want to heal it. Hawthorn is a great heart healing herb. There’s also Bleeding Heart (flower essence), and Cleavers for letting go. Among many, many others! I hope you are feeling better.
