Advanced Herbalist Group

Class Details

Next Session Begins May 2024


Become part of the local herbal community. Meet monthly with other herbalists for field trips, hands-on medicine making, and in-depth learning about herbs. This class is for continuing students, who have a firm foundation in Herbalism and would like to build on the basics. The yearlong course is divided into 2 parts:

The Summer Series runs from May through September and includes 6 field trips, giving members the opportunity to develop relationships with wild places and living plants while creating their own field notebook. Field trips include a variety of different habitat-types such as the desert basin, foothills, mountain forests in different elevation zones, and riparian environments. By the end of this series, students will be familiar with a wide range of plants and landscapes of New Mexico.

The Winter Series runs from October through March and includes 6 sessions, each with hands-on medicine making, peer discussion, and independent research and formulation. Members will have the opportunity to make a wide variety of herbal preparations in class with supplies provided and also develop their own product recipes to share in class and receive feedback.

Students may enter the Advanced Herbalists Group in either May (starting with the Summer Session) or October (starting with the Winter Session), depending on available openings.

Annual membership costs $539 plus tax, including all your supplies, and space is limited.
