Herbalism- the art and craft of healing with plants.
Kenzie McDonald is a long time friend of the farm, who shares our love for good food raised well and children's education. Kenzie has brought herbal plants to our gardens and worked along side us as a Camp Bread and Butter counselor. In the fall of 2017, Kenzie launched the first Bread and Butter Herbal Classes, which she taught in our farm store and in the surrounding fields and forests. We are excited to continue our collaboration with Kenzie in the form of the winter herbal classes, and a week herbal theme at Camp Bread & Butter this summer. See below for more information about the new classes coming up this winter!

The magic of using plants for medicine is in all of us. Join to learn about the benefits of different plant for our bodies, how to communicate with plants, play outside in nature and make herbal remedies to take home! This season we will focus on magic and imagination with some playful creations in connection to Harry Potter.
This herbal-based educational series will highlight the magic and life of plants in the forest and in the field. We will learn about everything from plant communication to scientific experiments to remedy making to herbal traditions and folklore. Our classes will incorporate yoga, hikes, fire-building and potions-making.
