Three Year
Community Herbalist Training Program



leaf4hedsYear 1: Foundations of Herbalismleaf4heds2

March 16 – November 17, 2019

This program is the heart and soul of our offerings. We will see how our bodies and souls respond to different foods and medicines at different times of the year. Curriculum includes medicine making, wild food preparation, kitchen apothecary practices, anatomy & physiology and foundations of different models of herbalism; biomedical, Ayurvedic, Traditional Chinese Medicine and the sacred journey to the plants themselves.

Above and beyond the rich and detailed curriculum is the creation of a sacred circle. This is the work of our time now; to come together as a community and bring forth the sustainable and joyful practices that will lead us to a healthier and more grounded life.

There are day trips to meet various eco niches as well.

This class can also be taken by itself or as the Nine-Month Foundations Weekend Program.
For full details, cost, and dates of program please see the Foundations Program page.
