Feedback From Our Students
"Excellent course-paves the path for understanding and using western herbs with confidence. Looking forward to incorporating what I learned to help our furry friends! AWESOME!!!"
On Our Materia Medica:
"The lectures were great--lots of good information. I like the inclusion of traditional uses and energetics of the herbs--gives insight into subtleties of herbal action."
On Our Labs:
"Labs were fun and informative and helped me gain confidence in making herbal products for self and family (which I do a lot now)."
On Our Herb Walks:
"Loved them! Seeing, touching, tasting, smelling plants in their natural environment deepened my connection with them and appreciation of them as living entities. "
On Our Homeworks:
"These gave me a welcome "excuse" to spend time researching herbs I didn't know much about. I also gained insights into the way information can be misrepresented on the Internet. Sometimes it was confusing and difficult to sort out 'the real story'."
