AUGUST 14-16 VALUE ADDED HERBAL PRODUCTS
Join Jane at the farm and at her apothecary for a weekend of creating herbal wellness products. First, spend some time in the garden learning and studying the organoleptic qualities of each herb.

Enjoy the weekend in the pristine and quiet Baraboo Bluffs to connect to Nature and experience the healing that comes from these wondrous plants.
