"The Science & Art of Herbalism Home Study Course is not a clinical level program, nor is the focus only on medical herbalism. Rather, the course builds a firm foundation upon which to continue to build one's herbal education. It guides the student into the many areas and aspects of herbs providing pathways to deepen one's awareness. The students complete the course with a well-rounded and grounded herbal education. The course is geared towards the beginner/intermediate students of herbalism, though I've had many knowledgeable well-trained herbalists sign up. They use the course material as a review and/or to better organize their own source of knowing and information. The Science & Art of Herbalism provides a systematic comprehensive way to organize ones studies and gives excellent resources and techniques for doing so." - Rosemary Gladstar

Monthly classes will be held on the first Friday of the month from 6-10 PM in the Twin Star Classroom for course overview, herbal lab time and study group. This 10 Lesson course includes Rosemary's core curriculum, a specially designed binder, correction of all homework, and a certificate upon successful completion of the course. The Lessons are designed to provide practical, hands-on experience with each assignment designed to enrich your personal experience with the plant world. Each lesson Provides: directions and recipes on making herbal preparations, dozens of herbs to research, projects such as making an herbal first aid kit, designing an herb garden, making your own herbarium and much more.

Program Details:

Includes all instruction, materials, correspondence course, four hours of class time monthly, correction of all homework, a certificate from Twin Star for hours earned in classroom and a certificate of completion from Sage Mountain signed by Rosemary Gladstar upon completion.

Non-timber Forest Products Fall 2014 Webinar SeriesNon-timber Forest Products Fall 2014 Webinar Series Hosted by American Tree Farm System Click here for the full ATFS Webinar Calendar Non-timber forest products (NTFPs) refers to products other than timber that are harvested from woodlands. NTFPs include plants, parts of plants, fungi, moss, lichen, herbs, vines, shrubs, parts of trees, and other biological material that are either personally used or sold for their commercial value. We eat NTFPs and use them for medicine. We also use them to make decorations and create specialty products. Not only are many NTFPs marketable, they also are critical for healthy woodland ecosystems. Sustainable harvesting and cultivation of NTFPs through forest farming practices can complement overall stewardship of working forests. This webinar series highlights the remarkable and diverse world of non-timber forest products, ranging from an overview of the abundance and diversity of NTFPs to forest farming practices focused on particular marketable products.
