Wellspring Mountain and Eclectic School of Herbal Medicine

Lowgap, NC


"Wellspring Mountain is a beautiful nature preserve, retreat and educational center located 10 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway in Lowgap, NC. The facilities at Wellspring Mountain were once home to Eckerd camp E-Mun-Talee. Now they are the home for a variety of events including holistic educational classes, primitive skills classes, and health retreats.

We believe that living in harmony with our natural surroundings and community is key to sustaining life for future generations. Many of us have lost the skills our ancestors had, skills that emphasize self-reliance and the empowerment of community. Through hosting events that teach skills such as herbal medicine, sustainable wild crafting, healthy cooking, gardening, primitive engineering, and wilderness survival, we at Wellspring Mountain can help to pave the way for a more sustainable future."  -From


"The Eclectic School of Herbal Medicine was founded in 2010. We teach students to use what works, no matter what tradition it comes from. With a strong grounding in both modern science and traditional Western herbalism, our school is a great place to learn the healing arts!"  -From
