Frequently Asked Questions

Who is suitable to take the Herbal Foundations Program?

The Foundations Program is suitable for all levels of students, from beginning herbalists to intermediate and advanced, including:

•Those who are interested in fostering and deepening a relationship with plants.

• Anyone wishing to improve their own health and those around them with herbal medicine.

• Professionals currently working in health care. A significant number of our students have been registered nurses, counselors, social workers, massage therapists, doulas and other health care professionals. Some students have had previous training in fields such as Traditional Chinese Medicine and Naturopathy and already had significant herbal and clinicial knowledge. However, their feedback has been that our programs offered something different, which is direct experience interacting with plants in their natural state. Students reflected that this enriched their love, connection and understanding of herbal medicine and healing work.

•Students planning to develop their own herbal businesses. Past students have incorporated their knowledge into their caregiving fields, began herbal medicine farms, herbal product lines, or herbal consultations.

•People wishing to help themselves and their families, their community, and/or those who wish to incorporate it into their work.

Will I get a certificate for taking your program?

• Yes at your request upon completion. Please note that herbalism is not a certifiable profession in the USA, meaning that you are not required by a governing body to have a certificate to be an herbalist.

After I register for a program or workshop, will I be able to get a refund, either whole or partial, if I decide not to take your program, or if I cannot complete it, or if I miss a day of class, or for some other reason?

• We are unable to provide any refunds. Please read the program information carefully to see if the course and dates are a good fit. If you have any questions at all please contact us to discuss prior to registering and we will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
