Michigan Herbalist Classes
After having my mind blown from attending a week-long class at a folk school out of state, I was determined to find some local Michigan herbalist classes to attend. I'm obsessed with learning in general, but I'm particularly interested in health, well being and learning sustainability.
You have discovered my research page, of which I am hoping to attend a few of these schools below in the upcoming months. I have not attended any of these yet so they are not recommendations, simply ideas...If you have any suggestions please let me know!
So like I mentioned, this is simply a planning/journal page so maybe you will be inspired as I research ideas for my own personal growth.
School location: 10515 OP Ave E, Scotts, MI,
Types of classes: Blacksmithing, draft horses, farming, herb classes (at times), Appalachian brooms, tin work, etc. Classes change.
My Thoughts: Sounds so amazing! Can be pricey.
Pros: Classes year round.
Per their website: "Dedicated to teaching woodworking, metal working, animal handling, and other skills that can be used for personal fulfillment, professional growth, or international development."

The 2019 GREAT LAKES HERB FAIRE IS SEPTEMBER 6th- 8th IN CHELSEA, MICHIGAN.
My Thoughts: Sounds super freakin' cool, so relaxed and most like a folk school. Maybe next year.
Pros: Close by, affordable ~$200, plus meal plan ~$90. Not sure if classes are extra...need to research that.
Per the website: "The 2019 Great Lakes Herb Faire will be a two and a half day gathering in Chelsea, Michigan (near Ann Arbor) at the beautiful, rustic, Cedar Lake Outdoor Center which is located at 2500 Pierce Road in Chelsea, Michigan. This event is dedicated to the sharing of herbal knowledge and the celebration of our community and bioregion. We will have dozens of speakers primarily from around the Great Lakes with a seasoning of herbalists from non-Great Lakes states. Our intention is to empower knowledgeable herbalists and beginners alike, provide a space for networking and sharing knowledge, and to strengthen our regional herbal community. The Faire will have one to two keynote speakers, dozens of classes and workshops, a vibrant marketplace, kids classes/kids tent, music, amazing, healthy food with gluten and dairy free options, access to many acres of beautiful herb filled lands and trail of the Waterloo Recreation area, and a strong feeling of and continuous building of community."
