Spice Rack Medicine Winter Online Series
Where kitchen medicine and herbalism meet
This course covers the rich subject of Kitchen Medicine,
demystifying herbalism and bringing it back into the home. After teaching
this course in-person the past 5 winters and having it consistently
fill, I decided it was time to offer it online! I'm so excited.
We'll explore the amazing medicinal uses of the culinary herbs and ways to capture their properties for medicine, both in herbal preparations and in our food. Among the most ancient of plants included in humans' diets, these plants are still much-loved and utilized in modern herbalism today.
We will also delve deeply into the subject of "food as medicine". Deep immunity- true health that comes from the core- is best built through nourishing foods and the tonic herbs. We'll learn how to eat right for our personal constitutions, understand the energetics of different foods, use the tonic herbs and medicinal mushrooms daily in the kitchen, and how to get the most nutritionally from the foods we eat. There will also, of course, be plenty of medicine-making and cooking demos as well!

What students are saying....
"This online series is one of my favorite herbal experiences I’ve had!
I’ve been studying herbalism for 4 years and wondered if I should take
this course or not and I am so so happy I did. The content is so rich
and there’s so much magic within this series."
"I honestly wasn’t sure this class would be interesting to me, because I do cook with a lot of spices and sometimes grow weary of the generalized “this is how to cook your foods correctly” diatribe some instructors give. But you are a great teacher! This class was perfect; it was much more about delving into the stories of the spices and herbs, and learning about them in a broader context of health, healing, cooking, nourishment, and tradition. I was super excited for class each week and never looked at the clock. You have an awesome ability to share a huge amount of info in a way that is easy and fun for me to remember and learn. My relationship with these herbs and spices grew so much that it doesn’t feel like a chore to cook more with them, but a delight! I love remembering some little parts of their story as I cook. They are so friendly to me now!"
"The sheer amount of information delivered in this course was incredible. With Jade's skilled teaching style, she made it possible for us to learn so much in such a short time. Highly recommend!"
"Jade was truly generous in her sharing of knowledge, beautiful handouts,
fun recipes, and congenial videos. The course provided much
inspiration and tools I plan to use for years to come!"

She’s a mother to her 11 and 7 year-old daughters, partner, tender of chickens and cats, cook, blogger and writer, online educator, and half-gardener to her mostly wild gardens where the plants more or less grow themselves.

Her writings have appeared in Plant Healer Magazine, Herbaria, Loam Magazine, Aromaculture Magazine, and the Northeast Herbal Association Journal. She teaches throughout the country, presents regularly at herbal conferences, and has been a traveling herbal educator with Herb Pharm since 2015. The weeds will forever have her heart and her current favorite plants are Wild Rose (Rosa multiflora), Japanese Knotweed (Fallopia japonica) and Nettles (Urtica dioica). She makes her home in the rolling hills of western Massachusetts.
