This engaging nine-month program is for those who are interested in exploring the world of medicinal herbs, cultivating meaningful relationships with plants and healing ourselves and our communities.  It is a participatory program that will provide a foundation in herbal material medicine, botanical identification, medicine-making, anatomy & physiology, nutrition, magic and more!  Subjects covered include: herbal actions, harvesting, storing and drying, flower essences, magical plant traditions, seaweed harvesting, body systems, herbal formulation and themes that go with the season.

Participants meet once a month for one day and sign up for either the Saturday track or Monday track.  Two field trips are included; one for seaweed harvest and an overnight camping trip in the redwood forest.  Students will also choose their own study projects.  Each class includes hands-on activities with the joy of bringing home your own herbal creations.
