Workshops & classes

We offer many free classes and workshops here at the nursery. It's such an honor to work together with many local growers, educators, and community members and we wouldn't be able to hold these great events without them. Here’s what’s coming up and a few of the classes we've had in the past.

Cici Cyr of Abundant LA leads this series of monthly workshops in which we gather in a space of learning, wild beauty, and deep exploration of medicinal plants and their properties, both physical and spiritual. For each workshop, our space will be anchored with a mandala made from locally grown and wild foraged medicinal plants, which will be the center of our discussion, experience, and personal creations throughout the workshops. Everyone will leave with their own herbal medicine and feel empowered to explore the world of plant medicine at home.
