a  hands  on  herbal  journey  through  the  seasons

HERBAL APPRENTICESHIP

Taught by Clinical Herbalist Melissa Casanova and guest star teachers, this unique herbal studies program focuses on producing plant medicines from start to finish: from seed to plant to finished herbal product. We will be working hands-on on the farm growing herbs, harvesting, and processing plants to make high-quality fresh and dry plant medicines. This program focuses on building a authentic hands on relationship with the plant spirit & medicine on a biodynamic farm in Mendocino County. Throughout the course students will have the opportunity to build their own home apothecary of tinctures, teas, oils, creams, salves, and other herbal products created on the farm. They will also have the opportunity to propagate herb plants from which to build their own medicinal herb gardens.

During the program students will take the first steps toward becoming herbal healers for themselves, their family, friends, community, and the Earth. They will learn how common imbalances can be successfully treated with local plant medicines through physical, emotional and spiritual pathways. The apprenticeship style of learning gives you access to teachers and clinicians who work in the field of herbal medicine and can help you to build a steady knowledge base. You will also learn the skills needed to confidently identify plants in the wild and make medicines for yourself, your family, and your friends. A diverse Materia Medica will be covered. We will spend time in direct communion with a small handful of these plants, getting to know them deeply through plant spirit work. The plants will become our lifelong friends and herb allies to guide us on our healing paths. Students will learn the basics of matching plants to people by formulating plant medicines based on the holistic evaluation of the constitutions of both plants and people. This is a 11 month apprenticeship program.

Sign her up for the 6 month Girls Full Moon Circle Series where she will learn creative and healthy ways of expressing her ever changing emotions, goals and dreams. This 6 month series will be filled with connection, crafts, laughter, music, knowledge and delicious snacks!

We will fill each circle session with a mixture of education and fun with an additional sentimental craft for every day we meet. 

We will touch on many topics that come up throughout these sensitive and important years and weave them with fun crafts to create a space where the girls feel comfortable to share and ask questions to myself or their peers. We will explore the many ways that people navigate through their emotions 

and discuss the differences between healthy and unhealthy ways to express them. Your daughters will learn supportive sisterhood with others around her while still holding space for herself.

The topics we will be covering throughout the series will include: 

  • Self care tips and rituals 

  • Healthy creative outlets and exercises for expressing emotions 

  • Discussing the natural parts and functions of our bodies and correct anatomy names 

  • Menstrual cycles, detox & energy cycles we go through during each month 

  • Non Violent Communication tools & Issues that arise in friendships and family relationships 

  • The importance and power of consent 

My hope is to create a natural and more comfortable conversation about topics that are sometimes known for being embarrassing for adults and kids. We will discuss ideas and ways to making sure they feel the confidence to find and use their voice in all types of situations, how important it is to 

always dream big and believe in yourself as well as the importance of showing up and doing your best for yourself and others in all aspects of life.

We will be holding a parent info night about the series where you can meet me and ask me any questions about the series, contribute any topics you believe are also important to touch base on, and also to meet each other and talk about how you found this circle and your reasons for signing your 

daughter (s) up. This meeting is a great chance to go over your needs and are a huge part of creating a natural conversation around honoring and respecting womens bodies and the natural cycles they go through.

The fun and more craft driven part of the series is what I hope will be the glue to help the information and empowerment stick. The crafts we will be doing during our 6 month series include: 

  • Hand rolled Intention candles 

  • Admiration letters to ourselves or someone that inspires us 

  • Decorating and writing in personal journals 

  • Self Love Jars 

  • Aromatherapy pillows & annointing oil 

  • Menstration bracelets 

  • Expression through art 

Melissa Casanova will be teaching Kundalini yoga & meditation throughout the series for small sequences of heart opening yoga poses to help teach your daughter ways to ground and center herself on her own with breathe and meditation. On our last day we will have a henna artist visit and offer henna to bless all of the lovely young ladies so they can have another reminder of the growth and connection they made throughout the last 6 months. 

Each girl will be recieving a goody bag at the end of our series that will have wonderful treats such as: 

  • Handmade beeswax candles 

  • A Eagles Landing Pen & necklace
