What we're about

Public Group

Meet other people interested in herbs & natural healing, while you learn about the role of plants in health care.

Classes and gatherings are held at various venues. The main venue is Green Wisdom School of Herbal Studies in Long Beach, a school and apothecary supply shop open to the public during the week.
Classes are also held at The Green Man in North Hollywood, at The Growing Experience Urban Farm, and elsewhere.

We hold events that focus on bio-regional plants, medicine-making, and empowering people to take control of their own health. You will learn about botany, chemistry, anatomy, physiology, math, language, history and more, in your journey, and it will be fun and exciting and silly and adventurous.

Classes range in structure and fees from simple free gatherings and gardening work days, to stand along classes generally in the $20-$50 range, to short range series of classes on a specific subject (Women's Health, Apothecary, Anatomy, and the like, subjects too complex for a single class). There is also a first- and second-year apprenticeship offered (filled for 2018, sorry!). For more information on the apprenticeship, and on Julie, and other offerings such as consultations and personalized classes, visit the website at, come in to the school during the week, M, T, Th, F from 9-4, or call us at 562-591-8700. Hope to see you in class soon!
