Each moon cycle offers slightly different variations of what is taught and offered, for the seasons choose what we plant and what we are focusing on. Although, some crucial things will always be touched on, for example, each program will explore the basics of making soil and compost, the backbone to every garden project! We will also go over irrigation practices, the benefits and importance of worms, tincture and salve making, as well as meeting and learning about various medicinal herbs in every stage of their lives as we walk through the garden.

Taos Native and Chinese Herb Teachings:
The SnowMansion grounds and surrounding mountains are full of native and cultivated herbs and history.
The SnowMansion teaches intensive workshops year round. People learn through these intensives. The gardens and workshops are stocked with all the tools and supplies to make Teas, Balms, Salves, Tinctures and oils. There is so much to learn.
People come here from all over to work throughout the seasons and experience the connection between land, history and spirit. Helping people retreat with good food, regroup and connect to the mountain.
This delightful world of botany is opened through seeing and tasting all the variety of vegetation that the SnowMansion offers.
