We create new culture, by promoting new ways of life




“In learning you will teach, and in teaching you will learn.” 
~ Phil Collins

In teaching we obtain a lens through which we can observe ourselves.

Do you have something to share?


Wish someone had asked you to teach?

If you are inspired to share something that would fit at the Herbal Faire, please do so!
