My husband and I have attended two of Colleen's "Feast and Forage" classes and have been supremely pleased with both. Colleen's tour around the property to discuss edible plants, uses, and means of preparation is very insightful and really opened our eyes to the very same things that are growing on our property, but we never recognized as such. The lunch that is given at the end of the class is fantastic! The foods have many of the same ingredients seen on the tour and are exceptionally tasty. My husband, who is a great cook, came away with a lot of excitement to try to recreate those recipes at home. On top of all this, Colleen, her helpers, and everyone who attends the class just seem to have such a positive and friendly attitude that you can't help but enjoy yourself. We'll be doing this again for sure!!!
Wild Roots Apothecary is a step back in time: dried herbs and flowers hanging in bunches from the ceiling, shelves stacked with beautifully crafted teas, salves, tinctures and other herbal remedies to support the realities of our busy modern world. Colleen is a wisdom keeper of the old ways, but also has the pulse on current herbalism trends. Her ‘Weed Walks’ are a fantastic way to dive into some local plant medicine (it’s even more magical in the rain!). The apothecary is also overflowing with beautiful books, journals, hand-made crafts with a dash of the mystical!!! A true gem.
