So, we created a herbal medicine workshop that is designed to teach you everything you need to know, from plant identification to all of their phenomenal attributes and healing qualities, to the know how on making herbal medicines, what medicines are used when, and how to formulate a medicine and or a recipe. Herbalism isnt rocket science but it is a science nonetheless, and there are many many wonderful aspects to plants and their benefits not only as medicine for you but as helpful allies in the home. When you are done with this course, you will be able to not only service your family but also your community, in fact, we have a few people who after this course, are running their own successful community businesses, helping all and sundry live a more fullfilling healthy life. Its not a question of abilities or gifts, its a question of when will you make use of the ability and be the gift humanity needs.
This is where you meet the plants, face to face, as you learn about the identification of your herbs, to the conditions they like to grow in, the plants that make good companions for them, the types of soils they want, what they look like when they are healthy or not, and organic pest control.
