If there is one common point of all of our members, we've all had that breakthrough moment.
The moment when you are just sick and tired of being, sick and tired.
Dawn shared her breakthrough story in this podcast episode.
We hope that you don't have to deal with a true health crisis to wake up to the fact that our medical system just doesn't know how to keep you healthy.
This program surrounds you with people of like-mind looking to take ownership of their health.
We are proud to be recognized by and trusted to write for a ton of great publications.
You might have seen us!
and now the program is even better!
access to both core digital teachings & on-farm activity sessions!
There is a reason that students say this course is life changing!
Broken down into 12 easy-to-understand sessions. Core content will now be taught digitally so that we can squeeze even more into our farm days. Out-of-state students also have the ability to study from home all of the core "lecture" content!
While some herbalists only teach through purchasing herbs or foraging, we encourage our students to truly develop a relationship by learning to grow, harvest, and make medicine out of the plants that can grow in your area, on your patio, and in your garden space available.
Once a month we will meet on the farm in Marysville, OH to bring the lesson to life with in-person labs, on-farm plant study, community, and great fun!
These are optional sessions, but are a great experience, if you can make it! Sessions like our "spa day" (aka natural skincare) are a hit every year.
Out of state travelers are welcome to attend any session, but don't need to feel like they are missing core learning if they can't attend.
While things are getting stripped off the internet on social media and other online sources, we are doing the opposite. Our digital area is completely ours- we are able to speak unfiltered, teach REAL plant science, and help you have all of the tools that you will need at your fingertips! You will have access to visit and re-visit lessons as you want!
BONUS: We are able to give you SOOO much more with this new system! You might be a little overwhelmed by all of the good stuff we have ready for you!
Have you ever been around people that you can absolutely be yourself around? That is our community. Both in-person and online, these are our people! We can't wait for you to be a part of this amazing group of current and past students!
Some herbal teachers are Wicken, followers of Gaia and "Earth Mother", celebrate solstaces, etc. This is not us!
Although we have many Non-Christian participants in the program, we are Christian and see all of the plants as gifts from God for our benefit. We do use biblical teachings in certain lessons to enhance the understanding of things like plant communication.
This is the program that you've been waiting for....
The nervous system and herbs for things like anxiety, migraine headaches, muscle spasms, general pain, etc.

Participating in the apprenticeship with Dawn Combs at the Soda Farm was one of the best things I have done for myself. As a lover of plants and the outdoors, I had some knowledge of herbalism, but this course along with the certification has given me practical application and knowledge that would have taken years to acquire on my own.
I audited the class because I wanted to increase my knowledge of herbal medicine. I liked that Dawn explained how the body's organs operate and interconnect and how certain Herbs help maintain that balance as well as address outside impacts to the body. I feel that it is very important, in today's world of enhanced dependance on convenience and government, it is important to prepare ourselves to address our needs on a local basis within our family and with our neighbors.
I know everyone is saying this, but this class changed my life. I heard Dawn speak once, and even though I live on the West Coast, I knew that I wanted to learn from her, even if it meant flying to the Midwest! Our two weeks on-farm are some of the high points of my life. I learned so much, and have made life-long friends.
I now feel so much more confident in taking care of my young family with plants I can wildcraft or grow myself. When my kids got sick on an overseas trip, I knew I had the skill and ability to walk to the neighborhood grocery and whip up some concoctions to support my family’s recovery. I also learned a lot about gardening and connecting with the plants themselves. We went on cool field trips, laughed around the campfire, shared stories, and learned loads.
I can’t recommend the yearlong apprenticeship highly enough. Seriously, you’ll love it.
