The Colorado Plateau Herbal Intensive is a multi-day program designed to introduce people to the medicinal and edible plants of the southwest flora. This program is offered in late summer, when the wildflowers are at their peak bloom and the land is offering its bounty of food and medicine. The elevation range covered is from approximately 6000’ up through the Ponderosa zone to 8000’ in the fir and aspen.

The format for the program is:
Plant Walks each morning, meeting the flora outside in their native habitat
Making herbal pharmacy inside each afternoon

This four day course has been one of our most popular offerings for many years.
It is an excellent way to connect to nature, meet the native plants and learn to make your own herbal remedies.
