At Golden Poppy, education is one of our primary principles. We seek to educate and empower others with the knowledge they need to take care of their own healthy, naturally.

We do this in large part by offering the donation based classes so people of all backgrounds can have access to the information that we feel is your right to know. Our teachers are donating their time when these classes happen, they are not paid through the store, and 100% of your donations go to them for their time.
You do not need to sign up for any donation based class (simply come a few minute early!), all other classes do require you to sign-up and pre-pay so we have enough materials for all the participants.
Thank you again for your interest in herbs and our classes and we hope to see you soon!

Below you will find our upcoming community class list. It is also available on Facebook and via our newsletter.
