The wide range of elevation in our area allows us to access flora from the Upper Sonoran Desert Grasslands at 3500′ up to the majestic Alpine Zone of the nearby San Francisco Peaks at 12,600′.

Community Herbalism
Our education programs emphasize the development and training of Community Herbalists: folks committed to the use of plant medicine with their families, friends and local communities. Classes at The Forager’s Path offer high quality training in both the theory and practical application of Southwest Herbs & Edibles, Ayurveda and Essential Oils.

In these courses, the goal is to empower students in Bio-Regional Herbalism: to identify, grow, harvest, process and become proficient in the plant-based medicine and edibles from the many life zones of the American Southwest. A special emphasis is on the flora within a 50 mile radius of one’s home. The instruction is a combination of indoor classes and outdoors, hands-on interaction with the plants.

Ayurveda
This portion of the program presents the framework of Energetic Herbalism with an emphasis on the Ayurvedic view. Students acquire a working knowledge of the foundation principles of these healing traditions. The themes of the Five Elements, Three Doshas, Cooling-Warming, Moistening-Drying and the relevance of the Six Tastes are integrated throughout the program.

Ayurveda and Energetic Herbalism provide us with guidelines for choosing the proper herbs and diet to match our specific needs.

Essential Oils
This curriculum takes us from the plants’ production of oils in the forest and fields, through the distillation process, to the bottle. Next, we learn a variety of application methods and therapeutic uses based on both scientific research and tradition. As always, there is frequent interaction with plants and oils; some familiar and some surprises.
