One of the most popular and fun activities that go on here at the Salem Herbfarm are the "hand's-on" workshops that we hold every year. Check out this year's schedule and sign up for the ones you'd like to attend! We also keep a listing of workshops at our checkouts. (Note: content, prices and class sizes subject to change).
Registration for our workshops requires pre-payment with cash, check or credit card. You can register in person, by phone (860-859-3344), or through the mail. Mailed requests must include either a check or a credit card number (don’t send cash please). We will process your payment as you sign up. If you cannot attend a workshop for any reason we will issue you a gift certificate for the amount you pre-paid. Be sure to provide us with a contact number and mark the date on your calendar. We will call to confirm your place in a workshop but we don't make reminder calls.
