It is online, or distance learning. I am taking a short break from apprentiships while I finish my book.
The course is all self paced with full teacher support.
PM me if you have any questions, I would be happy to help.

thank you for the additional information. I've spent my share of herbal education money on the conference, at the moment. I'm going to try to do bits of Heart of Herbs next year, I hope. I like how it is broken up into the different body systems.

How much reading material is included with each 'Lesson', approximately?

Pat

I have a blog.

Pat,
Just to let you know we have scholarship programs

The program is over 600 pages if that helps. Then students have required and suggested reading and listening options.
The online program is interactive and many students seem to really love that option.

SO I picked some elderberries this am off to make elderberry syrup and a tincture...

Has anyone ever made a glycerin elderberry tincture? I know these are resinous so don't know if it would pull enough medicinal properties out. However my children probably won't take the alcohol tincture.

What are you making to prepare for fall/winter season?

I made a tincture with powdered (dried) elderberries and a mixture of glycerin and water. It worked fine.

Hey everyone!

I put up a tincture of hops (humulus lupulus in everclear. Hops is the ONLY herb that eases my anxiety and helps me sleep.
I was wondering if I can mix it with glycerin when it is done macerating? Everclear is SO strong, not to mention the hops themselves. I just want to cut the taste a bit. What do you think?

Also anyone have some stellar sites on the nutritional qualities of kombucha? I am brewing a batch and want to explain to my mother in law "what in the world it is" She saw the scoby and got a little freaked out.

this sounds scrumptious! how do you take it? how do you make it? can you cook with it or do you have to take it raw? we don't eat bread so i'm thinking either raw in tea or drizzling it over cooked sweet potato/carrots/cauliflower.

I actually make it to mix with vinegar (apple cider) for cold season. But you can definitely put in tea :-)

Do you just put some cloves in honey and let it steep?
