        Discover the key concepts of growing, harvesting, and preserving medicinal herbs, in addition, to using them to prepare soaps, infusions, tinctures, syrups, poultices, oils, capsules, salves, and essential oils. For eighteen years, Quiet Creek Herb Farm & School of Country Living has been offering workshops on sustainable living – medicinal herbs and herbal preparations are an exciting part of our mission – living healthful, sustainable lives.

        The theory of growing, harvesting, preserving, and making medicinal herb preparations will be applied in hands-on classes which will stimulate your intellect, fill your medicine chest, and empower your do-it-yourself know-how. Medicinal herbs have been used in making age-old remedies for indigestion, colds, inflammation, sore muscles, and many others. You will go home with your knowledge and an overflowing herbal first-aid kit.

        Over the weekend, you will enjoy a unique immersion experience as you absorb all the beauty and knowledge that Quiet Creek has to offer. Six delicious, locally and sustainably raised meals will be provided throughout the three days, with food preferences honored. Rustic, smoke and alcohol-free lodging is accommodation will vary based on registration but include a yurt, straw bale house, renovated barn, and/or tents. In addition to formal classes, the following optional activities are available for those interested: mountain biking (bikes & helmets provided), hiking, journaling, Sunday worship, and a community music circle. All energy needed for the weekend will be produced on site with the solar array and wind turbine, and all waste produced on site will be composted!

        Cost: $300 ($20 Discount for PASA members). Workshop is limited to 20 students.

        Weekend begins at 3:00 p.m. Friday and ends at 3:00 p.m. Sunday
