"The Way of Herbs is a deeply profound manner in which to live one's life.

Plants are magical beings that transform the breath of spirit so that we may

breathe... give their life blood as food and medicine that we may flourish…speak

of the wisdom of the ages in the language of flowers so that our hearts may be

nourished and our souls replenished.  Choosing to be one who works with the

essence of herbs is to live close to the Spirit of Life."        - Rosemary Gladstar


The Herb Circle germinated as Herb Haven, specifically for women moving through serious life challenges.  It has blossomed into a learning community for everyone as we all need the wisdom of the plants and each other, no matter where our life journey has taken us.  Our Environmental Access Fund provides participation for anyone who is experiencing financial hardship OR those who are Black, Indigenous, Asian, Latinx or have been otherwise racialized. Please contact Herb Circle Program Guide,  Deb Denome, at 585-394-7610 or for more information.
