I also belong to Herbmentor.com and it is an amazing resource. I am also taking Rosemary Gladstar's course and I am learning a huge amount. It is going to take me well over a year to get through the course, there is so much information to learn and process.
When looking for an herbal "school" beware of the ones that have a fancy certification and cost tons of money. There is one near me through a university that costs tens of thousands of dollars because you get a BS degree. Well, that degree in herbalism isn't going to mean anything to anyone else but me, and if I was hoping to start an herb career I probably wouldn't be any better off. There is no national herbalist certification right now, the FDA is cracking down on the public practice of herbalism. Also, what you learn in many of those courses is not necessarily more than what you might learn by starting at the beginning with the basics, several good books, a mentor, and a correspondence class.
