Join me on August the 8th!

On August 8th, I will be teaching my course on Herbal Medicine here on my farm.  We will learn about 10 common herbs and make every form of herbal medicine! If you are local...and even if you aren't!.....I'd love to have you join me.  I've had students travel from Kentucky, Virginia, North Carolina and Florida to take this class.

We will work hard, learn a lot and have a lot of fun.  It is an intensive class because we are covering lots of material and you are doing all of the work.  My goal is that by the time you leave you have the knowledge and confidence to go home and do this for yourself and your family.  The cost for this class is $40.  It runs from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.  If you want to bring a spouse or teenager with you, and you are willing to share the book and products you make, then your family member may attend for $20.  My students consistently tell me that I should be charging more but I think the price is fair.

We will make an herbal tea and enjoy it in class.  We will make another and turn it into a refreshing summertime drink....Lavender Lemonade!  We will learn to make a decoction and then turn that into a cough syrup which you will take home.

We will make a compress and poultice.  You will learn the difference between the two and how to make them properly, how to know which one to use and why to use them.

We will make an herbal  hot oil infusion and learn lots of uses for herbal oils.  We will then take that oil and turn it into a healing salve which you will take home!  We will talk about how to turn that oil into a lip much fun!

And finally, you will learn how to make a tincture...the strongest form of herbal medicine.  You will choose the right herb or herbs for your family and make a tincture in class that you can take home to add to your herbal medicine chest!

And lastly, I will teach you how to make Colloidal Silver safely, easily and oh, so inexpensively at home!  You will also take home a printout of my electronic book "Basic Medicinal Herbs, How to Grow and Use Herbs for Medicine".  This book has step-by-step instructions on every form of medicine along with an in-depth section on 10 common herbs!  I teach you how to grow them, how to harvest them, what parts to use and how to use them.  You will also go home with a special email address so that when questions come up about herbs, making the medicine or anything else pertaining to class I can walk you through the problem - I'll be your ongoing mentor!

If you'd like to register then email me at "shfarm at comcast dot net" to reserve your place. If you've taken my class in the past and would like to leave a comment, I'd love to hear what you think!



  1. I took this class last year, and I highly recommend it! Very well-done, very informative, and fun too... I have used several of the things I learned at home, and have found them to be very effective!

  2. vacation doesn't start until the next week...
    Someday I will make the trip from Delaware for one of your classes : )

  3. If there was a two minute elevator from South Africa to there, I'd come. :)
    I do have a question about something, not sure though if I can email you to ask about it.
    Take care. :)

  4. I would LOVE to attend this class, but can't make it this week. Our home front might just disintegrate if I try to cut out for a day this weekend!!

    I'm praying that you will have a fabulous attendance which encourages you to schedule more of these classes.


  5. I still want to do one of your classes at some point! I know you are a wealth of knowledge!
