This course is full and closed to registration for 2017. Dates and registration for the 2018 program will be added by Sep 1.

This program is designed to train Community Herbalists, people who are able to use the gifts of healing plants with their families, friends and local communities. The setting for the course is a small, interactive group with much hands-on learning, plentiful discussion and Q&A in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. In addition to the indoor classes, several plant walks at a variety of life zones are optional and available free to enrolled students.

Who would most benefit from this program?
In the past, many people who were new to herbs and healing successfully completed the course. More important than experience is a sincere desire to learn the craft and a commitment to complete the nine month program.

Other students have come with prior training in healing and medicine. These include yoga instructors, massage therapists, acupuncturists, pharmacists, MDs, RNs and PAs and others with a variety of alternative healing approaches. While they were well trained in their respective fields, the world of herbs was new to them and they found the course quite worthwhile.

For people who have previously attended an herb school and have a background in working with plants… Is this course for you? That depends. It will most likely be a combination of some review and some new information. It is best to contact us so we can discuss specifics.

When I entered the class my experience was primarily taking capsules here and there, using store-bought teas, and mixing essential oils in carrier oils for massage.  Was confused about all the conflicting information about herbs, and concerned about safety.  I now feel comfortable incorporating herbal preparations into my life.  The demonstrations on how to make different preparations were extremely helpful.”

“I want to begin by thanking you for a really wonderful Foundations class. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed it. When I started it, I was intimidated and felt unsure of my abilities. I thought you did a wonderful job of empowering us always, never assuming we might know something and being really available for questions or issues. This made the learning experience a comfortable and productive one. I also loved that we started right away with making recipes as I went home feeling like I could do this! … I spend a lot of time outside so I found it very helpful to see the plants and sometimes the same ones at different life-cycles. I also thought that you did an excellent job of breaking up lectures with activities. I found that I could remember a plant much better if we tasted it, or touched it and so really appreciated the teas, tinctures, honeys and other forms that you used to introduce us to plants – very helpful.
