Warm Greetings for the New Year,
I trust you enjoyed the seasonal changes, warm beverages, quiet walks, lovely visits with friends and family through the holidays. As the new year begins, I am giving thanks for the many blessings in my life including health and well being. I am also particularly grateful for you, clients, students, friends and family. May you receive the blessings of your dreams at this time when the days are short and the nights are long.
Perhaps this year, 2016 is the year you will make it to herb school for one of the following one to three day programs: Botanica Erotica Love Feast an annual herbal aphrodisiac class offered in February, Wild Food Forage and Cooking class is in April 30th, Herbal Immersion Weekend is July 15 – 17 this year and Native Plant Identification is planned for August 12 – 14.
We are excited to announce two new programs, Saturday Clinic and First Aid & Botanical Identification with 7Song.
Clinic will be offered on Saturdays for the first time in Green Comfort’s 22 years! First Saturday of the month beginning in March 5. For advanced herbal education, if you are acquiring hours toward your application for professional membership in AHG this clinic is for you!
7Song is coming May 11 – 15, 2016!! Mark your calendars and register early. He will be teaching for 5 days on Herbal First Aid and Botanical Identification.

What will you need at home or in your pack?”
Spring Clinic begins March 3 meeting every Thursday until May 26. Green Comfort School of Herbal Medicine offers a working clinic for herbalists to gain experience working in the apothecary, formulating for each individual and gaining clinical training. Herbal students from the DC/VA/MD Metro area may apply to be a clinic student and gain experience in a participatory, collaborative health care practice.
For those of you who have attended herb school, shared your path, crossed mine, supported our mission, and evolved with the plants I am forever grateful for your presence. We ask for your continued good vibes, love and support as we endeavor to co-create an educational environment and programs to continue to empower people to connect with healing plants.
Let there be Peace on Earth and let in begin with me.
