Materia Medica for the Community Herbalist

For this course, we’ll use Opening Our Wild Hearts to the Healing Herbs; A Florilegia for the Wild Heart Tribe as our class workbook.

Classes will meet weekly on Zoom for approximately an hour. We’ll discuss one plant each week - including it’s diverse applications in various cultures, traditional history of use, empirical as well as scientific evidence, magical/spiritual applications and affects, as well as basic botany, gardening, gathering, processing, for each plant we study. We’ll also delve into philosophical and ecological concerns as they arise.

There will be a question and answer period at the end of each session. Each weekly lesson will be recorded so you can access it at any time. Class fee is $40 per month.
