This will be a deep dive into herbal medicine for students and practitioners and for all herb lovers who want to strengthen their relationship to the medicine.

Students will harvest herbs and make medicines and build their own personal medicine chest. Apprentices will participate in these study days as part of their program.

One herb is studied in depth each month – from the field or forest to the pharmacy.

We will see the plants growing; we will study botany, plant identification, harvesting methods, processing the crop and making medicines, including implementing quality control and good manufacturing practices in the dispensary. Each day will involve time outside as well as indoors, learning by doing and workshops/hands-on as well as lectures sometimes.

We will discuss the pharmacology and clinical applications, safety, dosing, synergies and formulating with each herb. Some of the classes will be taught in the apothecary garden where we will discuss key body systems, especially as regards the herb of the month and look at the various plants that can be effective in each system.

Classes will run on Fridays once a month from 10 am – 1 pm and 2 pm – 5 pm (22 March, 19 April, 17 May, plus 4 dates TBA in Sept – Dec)

The fee is $65 per day plus GST.
