Beginner's Introduction to Herbal Medicine: A Comprehensive Course
This is a 6 part course for the beginning student who wants to learn about traditional herbal medicine in depth. Here we take the main lessons of a typical 9 month Foundations course and condense it into a serious study, without the 4 digit cost.
We will cover botany, apothecary practices, forms of administration, tissue states, tongue diagnosis, organs and their energetics, digestive, allergy, wound and nervous system care through herbs as well as make remedies to take home and more! Remedies will include tinctures, tea, vinegar and a salve. There will also be a plant walk! A class text is provided but please bring a pen or pencil and paper to do some extra note taking.
This class is fitting for anyone who wants to learn about how plants work in the body, is mystified and confused standing in the supplement isles at health food stores, and/or would like to be empowered with a foundation for caring naturally for their basic health and that of their loved ones.

Learn how to make your own lacto-fermented foods! This simple and ancient form of food preservation predates canning, retains available nutrients, makes them more assimilable and provides your body with probiotics.

Students will get to sample lacto-fermented foods and take home recipes for condiments and soda as well as some simple fermentation supplies.
