I recently took the Herbal First Aid class with Harmony and it was fantastic. She is a knowledgeable and enthusiastic instructor and by the time class was over I felt capable of identifying many herbs on my own when I come across them in the wild. The farm itself is lovely and the open classroom was a great setting. I highly recommend going if you have the opportunity.
