Mentorship in Herbalism
Students will create an indexed Materia Medica which will be kept in a three ring binder. Students will learn to identify plants in the garden and in the wild, and will learn the natural flow of planting, harvesting, and storing plant medicines.
Successful completion of the class will include presenting the Materia Medica for review, and once the approved Materia Medica has been returned, completing a take home exam which reviews key elements of the material. A score of 90% must be achieved to earn a certification. Failure to achieve a score of 90% will result in the assignment of a short essay/research project centered on the area of weakness. A certification can be issued once this research project is submitted and approved by the instructor. There is no legal requirement for the certification or registration of herbalists at this time. Cost of this program is $1250. A $250 deposit holds your place and is due upon registration. Payment is expected in advance of the first class, or you may pay the $250 deposit prior to February 28th, followed by a $100 minimum payment at each subsequent class from March 10th through July 14th.PayPal, check, cash or money order are all accepted. Please email for more information and to arrange a pre-admission interview. This program is designed for a small number of students and is suitable for those just beginning their herbal studies and for students who want to build upon past classes and apprenticeships.
