2020 Winter & Spring Classes + Events
Single Day & Herbal Series
Albuquerque Herbalism offers a variety of classes including both one-day specialty topics as well as in-depth series. Our classes often fill up ahead of time, so please plan ahead and register early.
Our mission is to deepen the roots of folk herbalism and to foster reciprocal relationships with the land by making herbal education accessible through community partnerships, engaging people in the restoration of native plant communities, and connecting them with the common wild and cultivated plants of our local area for the purposes of health and well-being.

From Our Students
“I wanted to let you know how much the classes I have taken with you have meant to me. I now have the confidence to take what you’ve given me and continue my own home studies and to experiment on my own – something I never would have done before your classes. I am so grateful to have herbs and herbalism as a regular part of my life now and that has happened because of you and your very accessible way of teaching and the affordability of your classes. I am indebted to you more than I am to any book or online blog or website I’ve ever read or seen, because you made it real for me and gave me the tools to do this on my own.”
“I was so very moved this evening to hear your words around our beautiful Bosque. I can’t even describe to you how much your words meant, hearing from your perspective, its story, plant connections, relationships, and also its waning….I was so moved! I have heard about you a long time from mutual friends about taking your classes and was so excited I finally got in!…Truly, your words and data/information, but how your heart speaks to it, is mind-blowing and moving. Big hugs and thanks again for teaching our community your wonderful class…and doing the work you do!!”
