Welcome to Misty Meadows Herbal Center. We are an Herb Farm, Store and Education Center. Our mission is to preserve, protect, responsibly promote and educate about medicinal plants, their habitats and uses and the art, craft and practice of herbalism, the medicine of the people.
In 2019 Misty Meadows became the first herb school in New Hampshire (and perhaps in the US) to be licensed by the NH Dept. of Education as a Private Post-Secondary Career School.
You will find us nestled on 66 acres of protected pasture and woodlands on scenic Wednesday Hill Road in the town of Lee, New Hampshire. Since 1989 our herb shop and sweet gardens have grown and evolved to become one of the finest facilities and resources in the country for bulk herbs, herbal products and education. While our gardens are not certified organic, we have used organic practices since the beginning and most recently have begun to incorporate permaculture as well.
Wendy Snow Fogg is the founder and Senior Herbalist at Misty Meadows. Her deep personal relationship with this land and the beings who live here has fostered a sense of "coming home to heal" for hundreds of students, teachers and visitors. She and husband Clyde have lovingly stewarded the farm since 1982, even before Wendy began to hear the songs of the plants and the whisperings of the trees and other nature spirits of this very sacred and magical land.
Our Herbal programs welcome students from far and wide to pursue herbal studies ranging from short workshops taught by talented local herbalists to a comprehensive hands-on herbal apprenticeship program taught by Wendy Snow Fogg, Jenna Kulp and Brian Pettengill. The Spirited Herbalist: A Plant-Guided Journey To Your Self is among the most highly regarded programs of its kind in the U.S. Our Advanced Herbal Studies programs are geared for students from intermediate to advanced level learning and are taught by exceptional teachers. In addition, Misty Meadows offers a variety of special learning opportunities with revered herbal teachers of national and international renown.
Our childrens’ programs are offered for several age levels and facilitated by carefully selected, qualified teachers.
Gardens filled with richly aromatic herbs and colorful perennials will lead you around the farm. Miles of groomed walking trails through a purely magical forest rich with medicinal plants are sure to inspire you. You’re encouraged to let your nose and eyes be your guides.
Our forest labyrinth is a place of peaceful solace where you can walk gently into the places of your soul, sit a while, then return with a quieter mind and deeper understanding of your journey.
Over the years countless herbal, aromatherapy and flower essence students as well as Reiki practitioners, witches, and seekers of angels and fairies have studied, played and found their personal path here, gracing this place with loving energy, great food and lots of belly laughs.
It is with great joy and humble gratitude that we continue to work, play and welcome others on this sacred land known as Misty Meadows.

Caroline Gagnon - Co-founder of FloraMedicina; A 4-year school for Clinical Herbal Studies, in Montreal, Quebec and on the web.
Caroline has been an herbal practitioner and international teacher for the past 20 years. She is a truly gifted teacher who understands the science, the practical applications of the plants, the anatomy and physiology of the body, and is able to teach with enthusiasm all these aspects in a very clear, deep and accessible way. She also stands deeply with the essence and energetics of the plants and the whole of the earth.
Her work has been strongly tied to community activism, bringing the plants to street kids, city dwellers, and community centers. She has helped to develop a protocol to naturally detox from heroin and has been on the board member of Trash (Technique de reference et d’accompagnement pour le sevrage d’héroine). Caroline has also taught to students in pharmacology at the University of Montreal. She has also been on the board of the Quebec herbalist Guild and a founding member of the professional wing. But what brought her fundamentally to the herbal world, is her deep, deep love of the earth and a strong need to reconnect with her ancestors.
In the last few years, one of her main areas of focus has been to help and educate herbalists deeply, while accompanying them through their own blocks, helping them to realize their gifts. Her vision is that there may be many of us practicing in these much changing times, as we are all being called forward.
"Caroline blows me away. She doesn't just teach teach about herbal energetics, self perception, pathology and physiology equally well, but she integrates them so holistically that the seeming boundaries between them fuzz out and disappear. To manage this while being so down to earth, approachable and heart centered in her teaching is a true gift. And she's just super cool, too... that's the icing on top." - Jim McDonald
Tammi Sweet - A passionate and energetic teacher, brings 28 years teaching experience into the classroom. Her amazement and wonder of the human body and how it works shines through as she presents the material in ways people can understand and utilize. She loves integrating the wisdom of the body with all aspects of living. Presently she co-directs her Herbal Program at Heartstone Herbal School, and teaches Anatomy and Physiology and herbalism at Herbal schools and conferences throughout the country. Her learning of the body has come through many paths including traditional Master’s level college studies in Neurobiology, teaching College Anatomy & Physiology, Massage School, Yoga Teacher Training, Herbal studies, collegiate athletics and most importantly, an ever-growing love of understanding who we are in relation with this wonderful home we call the Earth.
