Herbal Training Programs 
      Our programs are focused on bringing anyone, from any background, with any level of  knowledge, to a place where they know, understand and feel confident to work with herbs for the purpose of healing body, mind and Spirit.

 First Level Herbal Apprenticeship Program 
 The Program begins on April 21 and meets one weekend a month through October. Students get hands-on experience making tinctures, teas, salves oils, herbal sprays, and flower essences etc. and are exposed to such various herbal traditions as Chinese, Ayurveda and Western Herbalism. Each month we cover a different body system and the herbs that nourish and support it. We focus on plant identification and do medicinal plant walks each weekend. We honor plants as our teachers and allies in the healing process.
