Join Marysia Miernowska once a month for an enchanting day of sacred gardening, learning, tending, harvesting & making herbal medicine.

Each class meets from 10 am - 2:30 pm once a month at Plumcot Farm in Malibu, CA.

You may RSVP for the whole 9 month seasonal journey or purchase single classes.

Supplies for making your herbal medicine as well as an organic, farm fresh lunch are included.

Each Farm day is an opportunity for you to:

~ Be guided in harvesting, processing and making medicine.

All supplies and support included, go home each time with herbal medicine. If you come to all classes or several, you will organically begin building your home apothecary.

~ Deeply connect with one (or more) medicinal plant in the garden each month, receiving teachings from Marysia about the medicinal properties, magick, lore of the healing herb of the month.

Each student will receive a printed plant profile for the herb of the month which can be gathered for a collection.  

~ Learn and create some of Marysia’s most treasured herbal recipes under her guidance.

~ Deepen your connection to the cycles of nature through the portal of a garden, learning how to harmonize your energy with the seasons of Gaia, during the morning farm walk guided by Marysia. 

~ Sample herbal teas and medicines, learn about one or more medicinal plants each time, how to grow, cultivate, process, and alchemize each herb. 

~ Have a nourishing and fun day at the beautiful farm, among the herbs and flowers, in sweet community, making friends, being outside, rejuvenating your body, heart and spirit. 

~ Enjoy a farm fresh lunch made of farm grown, organic, seasonal soup, fermented sourdough bread, and a salad we will make fresh together each time from the land with edible flowers. 

~ Pick up a farm box of local, seasonal, farm produce freshly picked to take home and continue eating from the land (based on availability).

~ Receive guidance and suggested home practices & reflections to deepen and apply the teachings for a home apothecary, in a home garden or as a land steward.

~ Learn about some of these themes:

Sacred gardening, earth based rituals, composting, garden design, regenerative farming & permaculture principles, seasonal self care, folk herbalism, the nourishing traditions of herbalism, earth Magick & more. 


This offering is open to anyone interested in learning more about how to plant, care for and be in reciprocity with an herbal medicine garden, as a land steward or Earth lover.
