At Centro Ashé Herbs & Education we are grateful to build cooperatively to keep the knowledge of our food, herbal medicine, seeds, and our healing traditions alive and vital within our communities. Our belief is that plant medicine is the people's medicine, everyone of us comes from a lineage of plant people, and this knowledge is our birthright.
We are a community rooted educational center based outside Washington DC and the Caribe Sur of Costa Rica. Our goal is to keep our classes inspiring, useful, affordable & accessible while honoring the time, energy, and knowledge our teachers come to share. Centro Ashé programs act as catalysts to build community, land-based, and traditional knowledge. We celebrate the richness and diversity of folk herbalism across cultures while providing supportive and practical knowledge. We honor the incredible knowledge present within our communities and our teachers are all local herbalists, farmers, and plant people in the communities we work, the knowledge is right here!
Centro Ashé programs are a reflection of and supported by our community, and so it is with true gratitude we thank you for your interest and support. We look forward to building with you!
