Portland Herb Craft School is a mobile herb growing school that moves locations each year. Our mission is to spread knowledge about medicinal plants while cultivating them in the city and beyond. Each year will take on a new theme and project depending on our host's location.  

In 2024 we will be learning and growing at The Portland Grief House located in St. John’s. We will be exploring grief as we design and cultivate a medicinal herb tea garden for The Portland Grief House. The herbs we cultivate will be used to support those sitting with grief for years to come.   

In This Class We Will Learn: - How to cultivate medicinal herbs with care - Basic regenerative agricultural practices - How to design an herbal garden - To preserve herbs with herbal remedies - Introductory Materia medica - How to make farm and garden purchases locally - How to build a budget greenhouse - Options for irrigation - How to build a dehydrator - To explore Grief with this year's hosts: The Portland Grief House - and so much more....!
