Please take a moment to review our policies and registration information.

Course Schedule
Please click here to view our current list of courses. Simply click on each course name on the page and you will be able to read a full description of its content.

Monthly Payment Plan

Longer programs have a monthly payment option. If this is chosen, payments must be made on time each month. The due date is listed for each month on the web page for the course. A student who is late making a payment will not be able to attend further class meetings until the payments are up to date.

Initial Contact
Communication with prospective students is important to us. In the maze of texting, Twitter and emails, messages sometimes get misplaced or go un-noticed. To avoid potential problems, do the following:

After making payment via PayPal or postal mail, send an email to info@theforagerspath.com that includes your phone number. We send a confirmation email shortly after receiving your course payment. It is important to look for this either in your regular inbox or junk folder. If you don’t hear from us within three business days, it means wires got crossed somewhere. Please call us at 928-890-7417.

Discounts
Discounts are given for early registration for some courses. See our course schedule for details. This benefits students by offering a more affordable price. It benefits the school by helping with planning.

To receive the discount, the entire course cost must be received by PayPal or the mailed check must be postmarked by the date listed on the schedule. Payment plans qualify for the discount if the final payment is received by the discount deadline.

Pre-Registration
Pre-registration is needed for each course. Classes are only open to people who have formally registered. Do not bring extra family, friends or pets.

Payments
Payment can be made via PayPal on the Courses/Workshops page of our website or by check via postal mail.

Herb courses are purchased in their entirety. There is no refund for missed classes or for students who stop coming to class. Students may not pick and choose which classes to attend and/or pay for.

Refunds
There are no refunds on any of our courses. Register only when you have all your questions answered and you are committed to attend.

This policy reflects the fact that most of the expenses and logistical planning, including reservations, occur long before the course begins. A course is confirmed once enough people register.

Since our courses are small by design, cancellations affect the entire group dynamics. Many people travel from out of town to attend. Both the instructor and the other students have prepared for class dates far in advance.

Admittance Policy
When studying healing and the traditional uses of plants, it is important to have the correct match or fit between the student and instructor. This is especially true for any program longer than a one day workshop. Prospective students are encouraged to contact us well before the starting date for a course to see if The Forager’s Path is the right choice for you.

On occasion, we turn away individuals from registering for our programs. This is not a common occurrence nor one we take lightly. It is done only when we feel the school and the student are not the right fit for each other.

Reviewing a Class
It is not uncommon that students wish to repeat a course they have already attended at our school.

This may be for a variety of reasons. Usually it is either to repeat a class to pick up details on a specific topic that were missed the first time or simply to be in an healing environment with other like minded people.

The cost for this is 40% of the current course price or $15, whichever is greater. No early registration or other discounts apply to this.
Reviewing a class is dependent on available space and is decided on a case by case basis.
Repeat students need to register ahead of time; there are no informal drop-ins.

Please contact us at 928-890-7417 or email us with any questions.
