Plant Healing and More
Nature’s Divine Botanica offers a wide range of herbal education opportunities taught by herbalist, ethnobotanist, mycologist and founder of NDB, Teasha McCallum.
Our plant healing retreats, workshops, plant walks and classes are held at our home-base and at exclusive destinations around the Olympic Peninsula. We are located in the Northeast neighborhood of Olympia, Washington and and are just a hop, skip and a jump from one of our special exploring spots.
We offer many different classes and workshops and in these offerings we dive deep into relationship and communication with specific plants. We offer a hands on learning experience through ethical gathering, medicinal and edible plant preparation, product formulation, fungi and plant identification and foraging techniques. We teach how to restore and protect native plant habitats and to live in reciprocity with nature. We explore native, european and indigenous uses and spiritual wisdom of the Pacific Northwest plants.
