About the Instructor:
Farmer Greg Disterhoft began working with medicinal herbs after six years of large-scale organic vegetable farming in Massachusetts and California. His passion for working with herbs started in 2014 while managing Goldthread Herb Farm alongside master herbalist William Siff. Greg and his business partner Tamara McKerchie started Full Kettle Farm out of a desire to create a space for community, promote herbal education, and to play in the dirt. Full Kettle Farm produces herbal teas, value added products, and hosts ongoing workshops and events.
