Hello, herb lovers!  My name is Nicole Telkes, I am a practicing herbalist and avid plant walker.  I started this group to connect you to educational opportunities in Central Texas in particular.  I teach herb classes and on many different subjects, run a herbal practice and apothecary,  and am involved with community building efforts in town.  This meetup is yet another way to access herbal education opportunities that may interest you.  These classes are independent or a part of some of the classes for the Wildflower School.  If you are hoping to take the 6 month Community Herbalist Certificate program at the Wildflower School, this is not the site for it.  My goal is to have a herbalist on every corner.  I started The Wildflower Herb School in 2003 which is a community-run and led school with over 250 hours of original curriculum and growing every year.  We focus on connecting to our bioregion by learning the useful weeds, folk traditions, and holistic medicine practices from our elders.  At the same time as teaching philosophical concepts related to Vitalism, we make sure to include a modern approach by incorporating biochemistry, clinical trials and case studies.  Our goals at the school are to be deeply rooted to our long tradition of herbal healing in North America and using fresh local plants as medicine at the same time as being conscious stewards of our gardens and wildlands.  This is Herbal Medicine for the people by the people, Nicholas Culpeper would be proud......

Subjects may include:

Upcoming Herb Nerd Social Events

Materia Medica of Local, Bioregional Plants

Plant Identification Skills

Outdoor Skills, reconnecting with nature

Plant Properties and Preparations

Clinical Skills--CEs are available for LMTs

This site's purpose is to continue to build a strong herbal community through events, spotlight different classes I, and some others lead in the area, and be a social network hub for herbalism in our area. Herb lovers and herbalists of all types should join.  You can find out more about me at http://about.me/herbcrafter
