What is the Free Herbalism Project?

The Free Herbalism Project is an interactive community event with botanically inspired lectures from experts in the field, live music, community, and plenty of organic herbal tea—all free of charge! Our goal is to create a remarkable experience for those who wish to delve further into the world of herbalism, wild foods, and natural living. It is one of the ways in which Mountain Rose Herbs hopes to give back to herbalists and our local community.

Want to show your support? Bring your friends, sip organic tea, and learn about herbs! You can also support the featured herbalists' free clinic or nonprofit organizations through the purchase of whimsical merchandise, herbal books, and other goodies between lectures. 

If you’re unable to make it to the event, be sure to tune in to Herbal Radio, presented by Mountain Rose Herbs. This community resource is a collection of curated lectures from some of our generation's most esteemed herbalists, including Rosemary Gladstar, Tieraona Low Dog, Guido Masé, and Jim McDonald.

Our YouTube channel is also features a wealth of herbal education and inspiration. When we host visiting teachers for the Free Herbalism Project, we sit down with the herbalists and record informative videos for your viewing pleasure.
