Three Seasons of Herbal Wisdom 2023

A fun, practical class designed to inspire confidence and creative thinking.

The class is full of hands-on herbal experience, with real live plants. This will be my 25th year teaching Three Seasons. The class is suited for people with almost no prior plant knowledge to folks who have studied quite a bit but hope for a program that will finally get them to the point of practicing. The class is designed to provide a solid foundation for developing your knowledge and competence as an herbalist, whether you plan to become a practicing herbalist, or simply desire to be better able to care for yourself and those around you.

"I have devoted my adult life to the study & practice of professional health care. I have studied with quite a few herbalists and doctors who use herbal medicine; Lise Wolff is the finest herb teacher I have had. Taking Lise Wolff’s Three Seasons Herb Class is something I wish I had done as a young man before acquiring any nursing, naturopathic medicine and oriental medicine degree for what Lise Wolff conveys in her herb course is accessible, foundational, practical. Knowing the local plants’ distinct qualities, habitat, properties, personalities as neighbors, medicines, legends, Lise Wolff presents information in three dimensions to students. She introduces the possibility to novice lay people and health care professional alike of reading a person’s condition and introducing the specific, appropriate local plant medicine to heal disease. Lise Wolff’s Three Seasons Herb Class will introduce and equip any student to be a real herbalist."

"'There is no greater service a man can render to his country than to introduce a useful plant into its culture.' Thomas Jefferson

"The same holds true for most any individual student who would take this introduction to herbal medicine."

"I consider Lise's 3 Seasons Class to be the catalyst that helped me to identify and nurture what has become my life's passion: helping others through herbal medicine. I took several of Lise's one-time classes, became intrigued with herbs, and decided to take the plunge and invest my time and money into her 3 Seasons Class. Best. Investment. Ever.

"The 3 Season classes include people with many levels of experience and knowledge - I was definitely one of the beginner level students and wondered what I had gotten myself into! However, Lise is a master teacher and so good at explaining details and making sure everyone understands and feels included in class discussion and activity.

"Along with Lise's expertise and instruction in class, I learned so much from sitting in on "live" consultations with Lise and her clients, getting hands on experience with how to conduct a consult and invaluable tips on determining which herbs and preparations might give support in each situation.

"The time commitment of the class lends itself to developing friendships which continue long after the class is over. I so enjoy seeing several herbalist friends from my 3 Seasons Class at events or meeting over a cup of tea - hopefully herbal! The greatest longterm benefit, however, has been Lise's ongoing support whenever I have questions or a new discovery to share. Priceless."

"I took 3 Seasons of Herbal Wisdom over ten years ago and have such fond memories of it. Foraging for wild plants, tasting the medicines and having lectures outside in the elements was such a relief from conventional education. Lise Wolff so generously transmits her passion and practical knowledge for the local flora with a mix of historical and contemporary data, personal clinical experience and hands-on practice with students. The wealth of teachings from this class became the foundation for my dream of becoming a professional herbalist. I now run a busy practice and feel so grateful! More importantly, a very intimate relationship developed with the land and its common weeds, this little know rich world of curiosity growing in our own backyards. It is amazing how you become useful to friends, family and your community after one year hanging out with Lise, whose teachings have impacted thousands by now and likely saved millions in healthcare costs! Agrimony, solomon seal, blue vervain...what a precious time I spent that year..."
“Lise Wolff’s Three Seasons of Herbal Wisdom has been one of the best investments I have ever made and I would highly recommend it. I had very little knowledge of herbs and plants going into the program. After searching many options that included correspondence classes, I knew that Lise’s offering was for me. Lise’s style is alive and hands on. She brilliantly brings together her years of clinical experience, information from clinical studies, herbal history, contact with plants in the environment, and hands on medicine making. In addition, the clinical hours offered through the apprenticeship was invaluable. Lise is able to take complex information and present it in a manner that can be easily applied. She challenges her students to think deeply and make connections with the plants in their environment. By the end of the program, I had 60+ tinctures plus salves and had more than enough herbal inventory to get my practice going. It brings me joy to be able to share this knowledge and wisdom with confidence to family, friends, clients, and beyond. Life changing.”
