REST AND REJUVINATE
Agave Maria Botanicals workshops take place at the historic lodge Orchard Canyon on Oak Creek, nestled in the heart of Oak Creek Canyon in Sedona, Arizona. This 10-acre landscape is a veritable botanical oasis, with an heirloom apple orchard and 20 varieties of fruit trees, an organic garden that provides veggies, herbs and flowers for the farm-to-table restaurant. We center our workshops in the garden, where you will learn how we grow and tend to our herbs and flowers and make herbal elixirs, flower essences and beautiful seasonal flower arrangements. While it is not required that you stay on site and have meals at Orchard Canyon to participate in one of our workshops, we encourage you to treat yourself by immersing yourself completely in the entire experience.

THE ORCHARD HOUSE

We have reserved the Orchard House for shared housing for workshop participants. This house was built by the former owners, the Garland Family, and is now used for special events and group rentals. This space sleeps 8-10 people comfortably with three bedrooms, a private room with a futon and cot, and ample living space. The amenities include a full kitchen, dining room, living room and a beautiful deck overlooking the apple orchard and the towering cliffs of Oak Creek Canyon. Important note: meals at the lodge are not included in this rate. See meals section below for details. For room rates and reservations visit the lodging page. Note: when you register, we will charge you 50% of the total room cost. The remainder will be charged at the time of the workshop.

HISTORIC CREEKSIDE CABINS

For a more private experience, you can reserve a rustic creekside cabin situated on the banks of Oak Creek, affording you the sounds of the rushing creek, chirping birds and breeze blowing through the trees. The charming cabins feature a queen-sized bed, a small breakfast nook and spacious deck overlooking the creek. The $350 nightly rate is based on double occupancy, and includes a hearty, cooked to order breakfast, afternoon tea, and an elegant, four course dinner. To reserve a cabin, visit the Orchard Canyon website for availability and details, and email Kate agavemariadesign@gmail.com to receive the workshop rate.
