This course outlines the complete Community Herbalist program plan.

We begin by introducing ourselves and our experience as herbalists, so you can know who's teaching you and why you can trust us!

We proceed to a basic orientation to the mechanics of the course and the learning platform we're using, along with with some handy study skills to help you stay organized and on-track.

We'll outline the entire syllabus - what will be covered in each module, their release dates, and the reasons we organize the course this way and what we hope you'll learn as we go along. Finally, we'll provide you with a set of fundamental resources you'll use repeatedly as you move through the material over the next year.

    Katja & Ryn

    Two heads are better than one!

    Katja & Ryn almost always teach together. They each have particular talents and areas of interest, and their perspectives on certain issues are quite different! Together, they convey a fuller picture of the realities of herbal theory & practice than either one could do alone.

    What a visual description of this herbal course! Thanks for giving us a vision of what our week would look like while becoming an herbalist. Also my favorite thing that I can't wait to start on is my space! I believe that once we can create space for- anything- we can achieve it- mentally and physically. With that said- I'm excited to share that space and knowledge with others. Thanks guys, ya'll are the sweetest.
