The East Village Herbalist Certification Course is an 11 month intensive cross-cultural exploration of how herbs were used throughout history as a way for people to heal themselves: from digestive complaints and high blood pressure to broken bones and snake bites. We explore the folklore of ancient traditions as well as some of the current science devoted to discovering the multiple benefits and uses of plants. We also learn hands-on how to make our own herbal remedies- tinctures, salves, poultices, lotions, oils, decoctions, encapsulations and more. No prior experience required. At the end of the course, students will be given a certificate of completion. The cost for 11 months is $1,100, and can be paid in installments. One scholarship will be available on need-based merit. One Saturday or Sunday per month is required for certification. Spaces are limited. Inquire below for more information.
Class begins January 15th at 1pm.
