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.
