Herbal Field Studies Introductory Class is now online!
This class is the prerequisite for Herbal Field Studies - a series of seven full-day outdoor workshops running monthly from April to October.
The Introductory Class establishes the theoretical foundation for the field workshops and provides an excellent overview of wild plant identification and ethical wild-harvesting. It is useful to any herbal student or herb enthusiast who wants to develop a more intimate knowledge of wild herbs.
Once you complete the introductory class, you will be able to attend any or all of the field workshops lead by Michael Vertolli in which you will learn how to identify, harvest and use many wild herbs that grow in Ontario or in similar ecosystems. At each field workshop you will also make an herbal preparation using herbs harvested during the workshop.
There is no prerequisite necessary to take this class and it is open to anyone with an interest in wild herb identification whether or not you continue on with the field workshops.
