We are practicing herbalists passing down the time-honored tradition of herbalism, incorporating scientific knowledge with traditional practice and clinical experience. The Apprenticeships and Advanced Training Programs are designed to teach students to attune to the energies of herbs to help heal body, mind and spirit. Students are welcome to join 

the Apprenticeships with any level of knowledge.  The only requirements are enthusiasm and a desire and commitment to learn about plants.
