Stonefruit Community Herbalists offer classes and workshops on and off site.  We have experience teaching herbalists, community members, people in various health fields, college students and children. Our workshops aim to be accessible to all, to address individual needs in the audience, and to deepen our understanding and connections to plants and plant medicine.

Upcoming Workshops

Bloomcraft Building Rm. 200A- 460 Melwood Ave, Pittsburgh
Cost: Donation – Register!
Teacher: Vilde Chaya Fenster-Ehrlich
Join Stonefruit Community Herbalists for our monthly Plant Sip! Plants affect us in subtle and powerful ways. Hone your skills of observation of these effects and better understand our intimate relationship with plants. Relax with a cup of tea and get to know a plant more intimately through different activities involving your senses, and learn about the medicinal value and traditional uses.

Self-heal, heal-all, prunella – this unassuming, purple-flowered wild weed dots lawns, pastures and meadows all through the north east. It’s known as a wound-healer, a lymph-mover, and much more; come find out first-hand what this non-aromatic member of the mint family does for your mind and body!

Plant Sips! Cleavers
Thursday, November 1st, 7-8:30pm
Bloomcraft Building Rm. 200A- 460 Melwood Ave, Pittsburgh

Continuing with our fall theme of lymph-moving herbs, we’ll spend the evening with cleavers, also known as scratch bedstraw, stickyjack, goosegrass, and, more generally, as a sticky, juicy weed that’s distantly related to coffee! Clear out the detritus of your day with a cup of cleavers!
