Support Our Herbal Studies Program

Fund-a-Need: Mini-Jack Tincture Press

Our herbal studies program teaches people how to care for themselves and their families. students learn how to make herbal tea, cook with herbs and prepare natural medicine for healing using plants they can grow in their own backyard. We want to show people how to make herbal extracts and oils using a Tincture Press. This will provide students with practical experience and increase the value they receive from classes we offer. We need this important tool to launch a micro-business using organic herbs grown at the farm to make a line of herbal products that will help fund the work of our nonprofit organization and train youth. ($565)

We need additional funds to invest in priority needs for each program beyond our budgeted fundraising goals. Funding a need will be a game changer for our programs. Cash, check, card or pledges accepted. Donate online >>
