About this event
Do you have an inkling of desire to learn more about herbalism and the wild world of medicinal plants? Then this workshop is for you! Each workshop brings upon a little something different from wild crafting with herbs to learning how to curate your own at-home apothecary. We will hold a focus on the season and the herbal practices which support it.

Instructor: Grace Krupkowski
Grace has been practicing herbalism for six years. She innately connects with any landscape and its local wild plants. She is committed to learning and teaching about the mind, body, and soul connection to nature. Grace works across many different herbal modalities. She has knowledge of Western, Ayurvedic, and Chinese herbal traditions.
In 2016 Grace moved to the Pacific Northwest. There, her curiosity for plants was born. She foraged and made her first batch of herbal remedies during her time in Olympia, Washington which then uprooted a desire to make herbalism a large part of her lifestyle and career. This sparked her passion for building awareness of the wild medicine beneath our feet, which is the intention she shares with all those she teaches.
In 2018, she interned for six months with herbalist Kenzie Khaliq of Wild Faith Wellness. This solidified her direction in becoming a full time herbalist and created a framework for her movement into entrepreneurship.
In 2019 she enrolled at the California School of Herbal Studies where she studied seasonal herbalism.
In 2020 Grace returned to Massachusetts and started her business. At “Land of Milk and Honey Herbalism” she focuses on curating small batch herbal remedies, educational zines, and facilitating local workshops and courses.
She is currently continuing her education at the Boston School of Herbal Studies, where she is enrolled in second level apprenticeship courses.
Grace is an avid gardener and passionate about enhancing her horticultural knowledge. She aspires to build an herbal homestead for growing her business through teaching and building her herbal wellness product line.
