How taking a herb class can change your life?
I am so fortunate of having received my herbal knowledge from my grandmother, Marie, and I am fortunate enough to pass down this knowledge to my daughter Natalie. So, where does a person today receive herbal knowledge and herbal wisdom? Learning through books and on-line classes may be an option, but learning from a practicing Herbalist enriches your spirit, gives you confidence, and you receive many gifts passed on simply by being in their presence.
Which herbal program best suits you? Some herbalist specialize in gardening, farming, and gathering herbs. Others teach how to make herbal medicines from freshly grown herbs, grown in their garden or purchased through bulk herb companies. And others teach strictly the science of herbology.
Since 1995 Natalie and I have been teaching herbal classes where you learn practical knowledge. You will learn how to use herbs and other natural remedies with confidence for your personal health and well-being, and to help family members or friends with their health issues. We share our vast knowledge and wisdom from our personal experiences serving the public for over 25 years.
