This series will run from February 1st through April 19th, meeting the 1st and 3rd Fridays of those months (see exact dates below). We'll meet from 7 to 9 pm. There will also be a private Facebook discussion list that students will be encouraged to join, to allow for continued discussion and learning between classes.
This 6 class series will give you a strong foundation in herbalism: making herbal medicines, kitchen herbalism, skin care, first aid, gardening & harvesting, and more.
Each class includes a comprehensive monograph on, and sampling of, each of the two herbs discussed, and in-depth discussion on foundational aspects of herbal healing.
Students will create a project for their final class. At the end of the course, a certificate of completion will be awarded.
