Learn 50 Underused Herbs.

Learn native and naturalized herbs of the Eastern and Central United States, medicinal houseplants, and ornamental plants that you never knew were medicinal.

Our goal is to give you a SOLID botanical foundation and to teach you more than enough herbs to use as food and medicine. You will receive links to medical botany texts from the 1800's, many containing over 300 medicinal plant descriptions.

We are firm believers of learning by DOING!

This is why we send you herbs to practice with and give you monthly medicine making challenges.

Our goal is to make sure you get what you need from this course. During the program, we will have one monthly zoom call to review online content. Plus, you will receive one live call or facetime call (if you have an apple phone) to do a virtual walk of your property. We will help you identify the herbs growing right beside you.
