  • Locust Light Farm 67 Pleasant Valley Rd Titusville, NJ 08560 (map)

This hands-on series gets you in the kitchen and out in the garden: harvesting, identifying, smelling, tasting, and making magic with herbs!


And nettles bring us so much to celebrate: their extraordinary healing powers, the return of fresh nettle infusions, their mineral richness and chlorophyll robustness. Nettles are an herb to celebrate for so many reasons, as they support us in so many ways.

This class will be structured slightly differently than the others, as we’ll be cooking together!

We will:

  • learn why nettles are such amazing & potent medicine

  • explore the ways that nettles support a variety of organs & body systems

  • harvest nettles together

  • make the first fresh nettle infusion of the season

  • cook with nettles! we will sauté them, bake with them — make a number of tasty treats to enjoy together in class

There is no “takeaway” for this class — we’ll be eating together! Don’t worry — you’ll have a chance to make nettle medicine in the following two classes.

Monday, May 6th, 7-9pm

on the farm

This class is offered on a sliding scale: $35-$45.
