The Free Herbalism Project is an interactive community event with botanically inspired lectures from experts in the field, live music, vendors, and plenty of free organic herbal tea! Our goal is to create an 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? Each lecture will be a fundraiser for the featured herbalist's free clinic or a nonprofit organization through the sale of whimsical merchandise, herbal books, and other goodies. Bring your friends, sip organic tea, and learn about herbs! See details on the next Free Herbalism Project here.


Ready to devour some inspiring herbal education? We're thrilled to share our very own podcast: Herbal Radio, the official podcast of Mountain Rose Herbs! This community resource is a collection of curated lectures from some of our generation's most esteemed herbalists. These informational episodes include talks from our Free Herbalism Project events, audio extracted from our YouTube channel tutorials, and more, all free to download and enjoy! You can subscribe to the podcast and download episodes to listen to while working in the garden, adventuring out to the forest, or anywhere else you'd like to enjoy some herbal ear candy!


This is our handpicked list of teachers and schools that we’ve had personal experiences with and fully recommend. Many are longtime friends and associates who have been teaching for decades, or teachers we’ve studied with over the years. However, this is by no means a comprehensive list of all the reputable teachers in the country.
