Third Sunday of the month for 10 months 9 AM – 4:00 PM
Become the wise woman or root doctor of your village. Empowerment is knowing how to treat yourself, family and friends when health concerns arise. What can we do at home, with our garden herbs, weeds and stocked apothecary? Come find out! Learn to mix and brew for whatever the situation. Medicine making is integral in the practice of herbalism. Learn the practical application of herbs in the treatment of illness and common health issues.
This 10 month, one Sunday a month, course offers the herbal enthusiast an opportunity to create formulas and products that will benefit everyone. We spend time in circle discussing the reasons, methods and techniques used to make each product. The focus is creating healing remedies for all issues, disease symptoms and system tonics. As we use the many herbs needed to restore balance we discuss their actions and phytochemicals. This is a fun, hands-on laboratory style program and herbal products are taken home each month to begin your own Herbal Apothecary.
2018 – 2019 Class Schedule
This training is for anyone who wants to learn about the powerful healing properties of plants, how to craft herbal medicines, how to cook healing foods, and how to identify and use the plants around us to support well-being. No prior herbal knowledge, cooking skills or medical training is required, although this course allows chefs, medical professionals, health coaches, yoga teachers and holistic healers to take their offerings to the next level. If you are interested in also taking the Foundations course that occurs on Saturdays of the same weekends, we offer a discount to combine both courses.
