Meet famous plants everywhere you walk

with Lise Wolff RH (AHG), MSc. in Herbalism University of Wales

Join Lise Wolff in online plant walks covering 3 seasons of plants used in Western herbal medicine. She has been teaching these classes for over 20 years. Now they are available online for you to learn and enjoy at your convenience.


These plant walks take place in Minnesota at the northern end of the "Big Woods" ecological region of North America. This is an area where Western herbalism was gifted many herbs from the Indigenous Peoples or from the exploration of the woods. The area is also home to herbs of Northern Europe (UK, Germany, Scandinavia, Poland, temperate parts of Russia) - intentionally or unintentionally brought by settlers. 


This online plant walk series covers many traditional plants used in Western herbal medicine. It is worthwhile to know these herbs. This is a cool temperate region. Lise will not cover many of the Mediterranean plants characteristic of southern Europe and Australia.


Early spring for some means dandelion flowers and daffodils, but some of us in the North are just starting to see spring's early risers: motherwort, dandelion leaves, garlic mustard, and budding trees! 

Learn how to identify, make, and use herbal remedies at any time of the season!

An Amazing Value

Each Class is equal to several hours of a typical in-person plant walk. This content is condensed and edited into multiple short, easy-to-digest videos.

THE VALUE 

  • You would pay at least $25 for a 2-hour group Plant Walk with Lise. 
  • Each online plant walk in the curriculum is 4-8 hours of a standard plant walk (walking around from plant to plant) - a $50-$100 value.
  • >We edited and condensed the footage into short videos (we don't show walking between plants, etc.). This means 2 hours of edited content would take 8-12 hours to cover in a typical plant walk. 
  • For example, classes 1 & 2 equal 2.5 hours of edited footage. It would take 10 hours of a plant walk to cover all this material - a $125 value! Classes 1 & 2 cover 38 plants! There are 84 plants covered from Early Spring through Early Summer plant walks!

Lise is so fully alive with the plants, even recorded! I think I'll watch these all over again.

I love this course and am learning so much! The way Lise explains plants and their uses is brilliant. I find all the medicinal uses of so many common weeds particularly interesting, and look forward to touching, tasting and smelling (and tincturing) many of them growing in my backyard!

Get outdoors more to learn more! This is one of the best classes available anywhere. Best of any plant walk themed class that I've seen. Lise Wolff's class makes you look at your neighborhood, roads, parks, etc with more awareness all throughout the year. She includes signatures and myth which solidifies your memory and understanding and the very importantl skill of tree identification. I may not be able to see what plants are half a mile from where I'm standing but I can probably recognize some of the trees from that distance... That is important knowledge. Thanks Lise!
