Off on another harvesting weed walk

Co-create your herbal education with PrairieWise

PrairieWise Herbal School focuses on integrated herbalism and offers apprenticeships that provide hands-on herbal and plant spirit medicine, including plant chromatics.  The school offers practical everyday uses for plant remedies.  This year PrairieWise will be on a vagabond journey to discover more plants on the prairie.  

To truly know a plant, we must be in relationship with the plant and the planet that brought this life into existence.  The plant will tell us how to use it for food,  medicine and reconnection.  Within the school we explore the essence of the plant from  integrated  viewpoints including shamanic studies, scientific research, folkloric uses, eclectic medicine, modern western herbalism and plant chromatics.
