[Lise will be teaching classes online only until we get the all clear to meet in larger groups without fear of giving each other the plague]

Around the world, for thousands of years before Echinacea was used ad nauseum, many easily available herbs, foods and lifestyle habits encouraged people to stay robust and strong throughout the winter months. Did you know that ejecting phlegm out of your orifices is actually a healthy immune response?  Come ready to have your assumptions about weak and strong immune systems turned upside down!  This class will cover many of the easily available folk remedies, foods and herbs to keep you healthy throughout winter. The world (and likely your current kitchen) is already filled with simple but powerful helpers.

2 hr class for $25

Online Learning with Lise Wolff
Meet Famous Plants Everywhere You Walk

Free Preview: Click here to follow this affiliate link for a free preview of the plant series, which is hosted on Matt Wood's Institute of Herbalism Website.

Lise will be teaching classes online only until we get the all clear to meet in larger groups without fear of giving each other the plague. The plant walk series will be recorded regularly from Very Early Spring to Late Fall, some in late winter and back into the spring again, until she feels the plant walks are complete. They are being professionally recorded for an eventual online version of her year-long course, Three Seasons of Herbal Wisdom. Here is an explanation of when the live version will likely resume, and why, if you can, it is best to take the live version. The complete 3 Seasons course material is being recorded for people who do not live particularly close to Minneapolis, Minnesota (or who just can't wait).

The plant walks are stand alone lessons. They should, over time, help you to recognize and eventually understand some uses of the plants we see, both by signature and qualities discussed within the videos, that become more apparent as the plants develop and grow into themselves. We're working out the kinks in the first few walks, so please be patient. Audio gets better with time (note to self; do not wear a cowl neck with a microphone attached) and we realize how best for you to see the plants properly. Make sure to watch the walks on as large a screen as possible. It really helps to see the details of the plants for identification purposes.

Lise did not grow up learning or even paying attention to plants. Her first few plant walks in New York City completely changed the way she looked at the world. Turns out everywhere we walk; the cracks in the sidewalk, the boulevards, the grassy fields, and the wooded areas are all filled with food and medicine. She hopes plant walks change the way you see your world, too. She made sure some of the free previews would alert you to very common plants likely living close to you.

Prices: Limited offer: $22.00 monthly for the series. Cancel any time.
