At the Solidago School of Herbalism, we inspire self-reliant healthcare by relating to healing plants in our bodies, kitchens, gardens and in the wild through hands-on herbal workshops, plant walks and retreats


Solidago, the botanical name of Goldenrod, is derived from latin, meaning "to make strong, whole, & healthy."  We empower people to become their own manifestation of "strong, whole and healthy" with the help of nourishing and healing herbal allies.
