Reviews from Herb Camp students!

"I would highly recommend herbal adult camp for those who are interested in learning about herbal medicine in a nonjudgmental environment with diverse classmates. The instructor, Mary Blue, was thorough with covering lesson plans and was attentive to all students questions."

Alissa Bessette, Coventry RI
"Farmacy Herbs is a beautiful community, a learning sanctuary, and a group of inspiring and informing individuals that are truly knowledgeable for anyone looking to begin or further develop their experience in herbalism.  The classes are both engaging and informative, and really provide a strong basis to understanding the many fundamentals of herbal medicine.  The summer adult camp was an amazing opportunity, spent with like-minded individuals in the most serene setting anyone could dream of.  The whole week was filled with growth, learning, joy, laughter, adventures and beauty.  It was the perfect balance of class lecture, hands-on projects, guest speakers, wilderness adventures, sharing and relaxing.  It was a joy spending time meeting new people from all over, sharing meals and stories together, morning walks, and developing our personal growth together.  It was a great opportunity to learn on a farm that flourished with all the herbs surrounding you, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the entire experience.  I highly recommend to anyone interested in developing their self, learning about herbalism, or building a community.  There are not many times in life when you can be fully immersed in the present moment with such joy. So thankful for the Farmacy family and all that I have learned and experienced, along with all the beautiful people I have met on this journey!"

The farm in full bloom!

"Attending Farmacy Camp with Mary Blue (aka Apothecary Mary) was a life changing experience for me. Mary organically curated a sacred and safe space that allowed all of the women in attendance to bring their authentic selves to be fully present in this experiential learning process. Mary has a demonstrated commitment to her work as a healer, educator, and social justice advocate. Through her Herbal Foundations course; Level One, I obtained a solid base of knowledge that has prepared me to enter the world of herbalism along with a strong desire to further my studies. I highly recommend any herbalist course with Mary for anyone wanting to expand their awareness, connect with other dope and like minded souls, and breathe in some fresh air and good vibes on the farm."

“Mary’s Herbal Foundations Summer Camp was a wonderful week of new friendships, exploring nature and making medicine. Being able to immerse myself into a daily routine of plant walks, harvesting and medicine experimentation gave me the inspiration and confidence to harvest and create remedies on my own. The provided workbook allowed me to be in the moment during the lectures while providing the important information for me to absorb at a later time. Mary welcomed us into her farm and created a comfortable and safe space for a bunch of strangers to learn about herbs, health and nature, and created a wonderful community of budding herbalists to help each other learn.”
