Join us on an immersive plant walk or create your own syrups and honey!

Edible & Medicinal Plant Walk

Would you like to become more in touch with the natural world as you learn to forage and gain knowledge about medicinal properties of wild plants?

Join us for a class and immerse yourself in nature as you get to know wild, local delicacies! 

Michael Ball is an edible and medicinal plant identification expert in Florida. His immersion class adds an extra dimension to plant identification walks so you'll get a more meaningful and rich learning experience.

​​Upcoming Dates: 12/14, 1/18 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Syrups & Honey Making Class

This is a hands on class. You make it, you take it. In this class, you will be making a cough syrup that does not require any special or hard to get ingredients- Just common kitchen spices that you may have in your spice rack. 


You will also learn how to prepare honey or sugar syrups in a pinch, and you will learn preparation techniques that you will not find on the internet. You will also make a honey that can be incorporated into a syrup when needed. 

We will also be making highly effective cough drops. Come and join in on the fun of this class. All organic, all the time.

Natural Skin Care & Moisturizing Lotions Making Class

You make it and you take it. The instructor is there to provide guidance. This class is like walking into a organic cosmetics lab to go to work-- no lab equipment, just kitchenware. In this class you will be making two very different but very luxurious facial creams.


Using different techniques and ingredients, you will gain experience in working with creams. No weird chemicals to put on your skin, just familiar ingredients that you can eat. People that learn how you to make their own cosmetics seldom buy them again. They usually go on using their creativity to make their own signature creams.

Upcoming Dates: 12/28 from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Natural Glycerides & Liniment Making Class

Upcoming Dates: 1/25 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
