Hi! My name is Melissa. I ran some herb classes and opened an apothecary in 2010, but life and love inspired a move to the wonderfully remote Northeast Kingdom of Vermont.

I founded Fungi Flora Folkschool in July 2015. Quickly classes began filling. The laughter, good tea, and yummy herbal food filled long winter nights with jovial company and inspiring tales of herbal wonders.

I am excited to bring these classes - chock full of juicy herbal tidbits from traditional and modern perspectives - to the wilds of the world wide web, where people from far and wide can take a sneak peak into our rural classrooms.

For those of you who would like to join us out here in the herb-filled hills of the Kingdom, I offer a 6 month herbal apprenticeship (1 weekend a month) for only $900.

This summer Fungi Flora Folkschool joined forces with a beautiful new community center in West Barnet Vermont - Brookview R&R (website coming soon!). Brookview is a pebble's throw from Harvey's Lake and provides lodging in addition to classroom space.
