Herbal Boot Camp
In Herbal Boot Camp, we help you obtain the knowledge and skill to grow, use and make medicine from herbs. Spiritworks farm will give you the time to discover, connect with, gather and craft herbs in a supportive community. You will leave with medicines you made, knowledge to grow and make your own remedies and friends with whom you can share your passion.
This experience is 8 days of hands on learning and sharing all about herbs with some bonus time spent in Glacier National Park-one of the last intact ecosystems in existence today.
You will live next to the herbs on this organically certified herb farm in Whitefish, Montana, sleeping close to the earth in comfy tents,(bring your own sleeping bag).
These one-week sessions will be offered throughout our season and are an intensive farm lifestyle immersion with team building projects to support some aspect of our farming venture and your personal goal. This idea emerged from several past experiences where we have had groups here working, living, studying, creating, growing together and is designed for those looking for a Farm-cation.
The guiding concept behind our boot camp is that we grow more than plants here, we grow ourselves as individuals and in relationship to each other with the community we create. Coming into relationship with the rhythms of nature is fundamental. Expect to rise early and go to bed with the sun.
