The Science and Art of Herbalism


The Science and Art of Herbalism is one of the foundational courses in herbal studies written by Rosemary Gladstar and has been used in training home herbalists for decades.  In her words:

 “The Science & Art of Herbalism is not a clinical level program, nor is the focus only on medical herbalism. Rather, the course builds a firm foundation upon which to continue to build one’s herbal education. It guides the student into the many areas and aspects of herbs providing pathways to deepen one’s awareness. The students complete the course with a well-rounded and grounded herbal education. The course is geared towards the beginner/intermediate students but can help even more advanced students to better organize their own source of knowing and information. The Science & Art of Herbalism provides a systematic, comprehensive way to organize one’s studies and gives excellent resources and techniques for doing so.”
