Sorry, registration has ended.

We are in the middle of moving our apothecary and setting up classroom space so are postponing the nettle class till June! Our Slow Plant Medicine series is a monthly botanical deep dive offering. We will work with one plant each class using our senses, hands, and heart.

  • Date: 5/20/2023 10:00 AM - 5/20/2023 04:00 PM
  • Location Foots Creek Road, Gold Hill, OR, USA (Map)
  • More Info: Vitalist Botanicals


Payment is on a sliding scale, but since the website is only set up for a fixed price, there are only three payment options: $120, $90, and $60.  Please use coupon 60SLIDING for $60, 90SLIDING for $90 and no coupon needed for $120. 

I strive to live by the motto of my friends at Prayer Farm: "Take what you need and a little bit less, give what you can a little bit more."  If the payment options above are beyond your means and you have a strong desire to participate, please email or call me and we can work out something that works for both of us. 

In May, we'll be exploring and getting to know nettle!  My fingers are stinging as I type this after harvesting nettle for soup tonight.  

We'll be 

  • meeting the plant
  • getting to know it energetically and spiritually
  • learning about its medicine (leaf, seed and root!)
  • exploring its historical relevance and folklore
  • learning about its use as a textile and dye/ink plant
  • making food with it
  • making tea and tincture from it

This class will be at Vitalist Botanicals' small apothecary and garden, between Gold Hill and Rogue River.
