Level 1: Grassroots Herbalism will provide the first foundational level of understanding herbal remedies and how to apply them. In this class, we will learn remedies for stress, the digestive system, the immune system, and children. Students will have the opportunity to wildcraft herbs and make medicines such as salves, tinctures, teas and syrups. With this program, each student will be empowered to begin nurturing themselves with herbs and have the basis to approach common issues with herbs. This is a great class for those who are ready to step into the plant medicine path or those who want a solid herbal foundation for their home remedies.
Level 2: Community Herbalist program will take the herbal education to a deeper level. With a strong basis in the Ayurvedic approach to herbs, each class will focus on the different systems of the body, the diseases and states of imbalance that affect these, and how to use herbs to assist in their healing. This level is for those who want to take their herbal knowledge to a serious level. Students must be ready to absorb a lot of information! Classes will include more advanced medicine making techniques and additional aspects of natural healing.
In order to join this class, a strong foundational education is required. Students must have taken the Grassroots Herbalism course or an equivalent course. An interview is required to be accepted. If you believe that you already have the Level one foundation and are interested in Level 2, it is strongly encouraged that you schedule an interview before Level one begins (On January 14) to ensure that you will be able to enter the program.

Level 3: Clinical Herbalist Program will prepare students for working with clients on a professional level. Students will gain experience with seeing clients under the guidance of professional herbalists. Different approaches and perspectives will be provided so that students will be able to find their own style and what they would like to offer to the world. We will also discuss business and marketing strategies and what it means to be a professional herbalist in this world.
