Workshops 2014

Foster your love of the Earth and reconnect with her wisdom through our Earth Wisdom workshop series.

“Enlightening, inspiring and refreshing! The permaculture workshop completely shifted my mentality on organic food production and opened my eyes to the wonderful philosophy of wildculture.  I enjoyed every bit of it. Amazing teachers, company and delicious food! I will be coming back to participate in future workshops!
Sylvie, partipant in Permaculture/Intuitive Healing

“The healing power of nature reveals itself to me everytime I use the salve we made in the Intuitive Plant Medicine workshop. Taking off the lid to the jar of salve is like slipping through a portal back into the flower filled field of summer. Now that it’s November, I really appreciate this!” -Maya, participant in Intuitive Healing Workshop

Here at the Algonquin Tea Farm the cultural role of our workshops has become crystal clear over the last two decades. We teach the vision and skills of traditional living, herbalism, permaculture and alternative building, but our aim is always the same; “To make the Earth come alive for our visitors who have lost touch with Her” and to “enable them to become part of a extended community that keeps this sacred knowledge alive.”

To help our guests become deeply, spiritually, personally connected with a small aspect of the real Earth is our goal. When this seed grows and blooms within us another deeper more meaningful dimension is revealed and the World literally comes alive. So when our guests go home, they go with a new vision of Nature and take with them a host of deep relationships with the plants, animals, people and other relations who have come alive for them during the workshop to act as their teachers and guides.
