Gathering and processing local forest products to create natural skin and hair products.

Join herbalist Santalena Groves, Alchemist/Creator of Heart Grown Wild, LLC, an herbal skincare company based in Wardsboro, to take a deep dive into how essential oils are produced through live distillation of wild harvested plants. The purpose of the workshop is to educate attendees through a visual demonstration of the amount of plant material it takes to produce one drop of essential oil. Join us for a plant walk outside and learn first-hand how to make hydrosol and essential oil from start to finish.

Space is limited to 20 participants. The plant walk will take place in the woods behind Holton Hall. Expect about ¼ to ½ mile with hills and be prepared for rain, sun and ticks! We ask that you please leave your dog at home as they are not allowed in the building.

Directions:  Enter Holton Hall using the main entrance and take the elevator to the 3rd floor. There will be signs. The indoor portion of the program is handicapped accessible. Please RSVP Dan Healey, 802-387-6128 or
