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 minutes 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.     

 


APRIL 

 

 Spring ELixirs

Spring Elixir Making

Sunday April 29th 2pm

 

Elixir, the word itself sparks curiosity and evokes a time long since passed.

Modern herbal elixirs are a delightful and delicious way to use herbs as medicine. They offer a full extract of the plant by combining a water extraction with an alcohol extraction to elicit a complete medicine.

Add some honey, and the end result is truly divine and typically loved by all.

In this class, you will learn how to make your own herbal elixirs using the method we use in the store.

You will leave with hands-on knowledge, instructions and a recipe, and an elixir to take home and enjoy.

Taught by staff herbalist Risa Hunter

 Intro to Essences

Introduction to Flower & Gem Essences

Sunday May 6th, 2pm

 

Flower essences are energetic imprints of the life force of plants which interact with the subtle bodies of the human being and evoke specific qualities within us. 

They work in a similar way to inspirational music or art, which carry meaning through the vehicle of sound or light, while the flower and gem essences work through the medium of water.

Because they are similar to homeopathy, they carry no risk of interactions or side effects, which makes them especially safe to use on people with special considerations, such as children, the elderly, and pets.

Come learn more about how to use these vibrational remedies in your life.

You’ll leave with a better understanding of how they work, why you may want to use them, and you’ll get to craft a personalized remedy to take home for yourself.
