A note on Midsummer Farm Workshops:

Classes are taught from a strictly Holistic and Organic standpoint. Class size is kept small to ensure individual attention. Fees include all materials and supplies needed. Children are welcome; children under 5 are free. If more than one person from a single household is taking the workshop together, the second person may deduct $5 from the cost of the workshop. Many classes take place outside in the gardens and are weather-permitting. Participants must register in advance. Cooking classes take place in the farm kitchen or in the greenhouse and are hands-on; tasting is encouraged. NOTE: times and dates of workshops are subject to change.

Intensive Herbal Course: Living with Herbs Season Long Herbalism Intensive

~An Herbal Year at Midsummer Farm~

The focus of this course is Living with Herbs - familiarizing yourself with using them and growing them and integrating them into your daily life. Classes will be intensive - Covering a wide range of herbs and usages.

This is a great course for someone who wants to make the most of a current herb garden, for someone who wants to take his/her herb garden to the next level, or for someone who is starting from scratch and wants to build the ultimate herb garden. I know many people who have an instinctual drive to collect herb plants for an herb garden, but then just don't make the most out of the herbs' presence in their lives - this course addresses that - providing lots of inspiration, information and experience. This course is also great for someone who doesn't have a herb garden, but who wants to use herbs regularly.

Classes are from 10 am to 3 pm. Intensive coverage, with bits of 'downtime' during the day to socialize and draw in the garden as well as making lunch and snacks together

12 sessions: 6 Fridays, 6 Saturdays:

PART 1

PART 2

Cost:

Fee includes supplies, snacks, and lunches (that we will make together).

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at info@midsummerfarm.com

Once you register, I'll send you 2 of my favorite herbalism books - so you can start focusing right now and be inspired and ready for the first class.

Classes will take place at Midsummer Farm in Warwick NY (156 East Ridge Road, Warwick, NY 10990) and will move about the farm during the course of each session from the greenhouse to the kitchen to the garden beds.
