a living tradition

Throughout history, people around the world have depended on the plants around them as medicine for their bodies, minds, and spirits. In modern times, as more and more people become dissatisfied with the idea of using pharmaceuticals and invasive procedures unless absolutely unavoidable, there is a resurgence of healing arts based in the vitality of nature.

Come study and consult with practicing herbalists whose work is rooted in Traditional Western Herbalism, informed by science, inspired by the beauty and magic of the living Earth, and grounded in our own direct experience working with the medicine of the wild, feral, and cultivated plants that grow around us here. In keeping with the vitalist tradition of holistic healing, we include ancestral foods and movement therapies as an integral part of our practice.

Our school and office are centered in Boston, Massachusetts. We teach classes, speak at conferences, and work with folks across the country.

You are welcome here!

We strive to provide a safe, welcoming space for the full spectrum of human being. We value diversity in every form. We honor the experience you have and the path you’re on. Come as you are!
