Our Foundations curriculum is designed to immerse both the beginner and intermediate herbalist in the basic knowledge needed to provide herbal care for themselves and their family.

This course covers the art of medicine-making, client intake, and the properties of over 100 herbs.
Classes meet one weekend a month for 4 months. This intermediate course requires the successful completion of Western Herbalism: 101  and the approval of the course instructor.

In addition to these fundamental principles the core curriculum will expand on herbal beauty products, essential oil, and plant spirit medicine and communication.
