Classes are going virtual and will be posted in the not to distant future as the whole concept of Gateway Herbals is reconfigured and changed to match the time I have available and reach more people.
Herbal presentations last up to 1 hour and are interactive. I provide plants, teas, tinctures and other items if applicable to the talk so you have a multi-sensory experience with the plants discussed.
We can still offer these classes in our barn with plant walks on the property!
If you would like to know how to identify many useful 'weeds' in your area or backyard and how they were traditionally used in home apothecaries, (rather than fighting with them and spraying them with poison), this may be something you would enjoy!
Small groups may schedule a plant walk and herbal tea sampling at our location in Kings Mountain, NC. Call or email me to schedule your visit. Of course, spring, summer and fall are the best times to schedule a plant walk.
Just let me know when you'd like to come visit and I'll put a kettle of seasonal tea on to brew!
Plant Walks at the property in Kings Mountain require participants come prepared for outside walks with boots or closed toe shoes (it's a mini-farm so please, no sandals or heels).
Please wear light colors and NO perfumes, hair dressings, or laundry additives during Bee season (March - November) We have honeybees on the property and they are attracted to scents so, if you come perfumed they may check you out as a food source.
The talks with walk generally last 90 minutes depending on the group, level of interaction and questions. A specialty herbal tea will be available for those who want to sample it.
