Three Seasons of Herbal Wisdom 2017
A fun, practical class designed to inspire confidence and creative thinking
Herbal Wisdom is designed to teach students to view the plant world through the herbalist’s lens. Practical and very hands-on, this course gives students the opportunity to incorporate herbs into their everyday lives. Hands-on experiences include plant walks for identification; ethical wildcrafting; herbal preparations, including herbal oils, ointments and tinctures; wild food foraging and cooking; herbal first aid; flower essence preparation and uses; and herbal care for common conditions such as colds and allergies. Students will collect and prepare a nearly complete herbal pharmacy for home use. Those interested in herbal practice will find the instruction in diagnostics and case history taking invaluable. A certificate will be awarded upon completion of the program.
This course is a series of 19 classes over the course of the growing season. Classes are held every third Saturday during winter and fall.
