When I met my husband, who was a western NY native, he introduced me to growing herbs in pots for culinary use, and he introduced me to food … what he called ‘real food’ that did not come out of a box, can or wrapper. Over six months he helped me lower my genetically high cholesterol to eliminate the need for prescription medication. I fell in love with the flavor of a home-grown tomato and all the herbs he uses in his Italian cooking. I made it my mission to learn to grow every herb we needed for both fresh and dried use, and we have not purchased herbs from the store in more than 10 years. As part of my efforts to 'slow down' after two spine surgeries, I began studying and exploring growing vegetables and the use of medicinal herbs.


Frequently Asked Questions


When does the workshop start and finish?
This workshop runs from mid spring to mid-late fall, thus covering the entire growing season of the 3 sisters. You should have received 3 Sister seeds packets (if you have not received them yet, contact me please) and as a cohort we will work to grow, meet to talk, share pictures and experiences into fall as we want to capture all the activities related to prorogation, growing/caring for, harvesting, and storing.
How long do I have access to the workshop?
You will continue to have access to the workshop materials through December 31, 2021.

This course is closed for enrollment.
