Join Tim Van Wagner and Ashley Votaw at one of HAALo’s premiere herb farms, First Rain Farm, in a wonderful hands-on series through the summer growing season. Participants will learn about herb garden maintenance, and proper harvesting and processing techniques of selected herbs.

Included will be discussions of propagation, planting, watering, and the use of medicinal plants. Depending on timing of the harvests, participants may also have the opportunity to take the herbs a step further into medicine such as preparing herbs for tinctures.

These beautiful days will culminate in a farm fresh shared lunch.
