Will I be able to participate in field classes if I have mobility concerns?
Our field classes are designed to be as inclusive as possible. Our plant walks are slow-paced and we cover only short distances as we take our time to discuss the many plants and landscape features we encounter along the way. Most field trips do not involve any significant elevation gain and require only mild exertion. Some field trips involve walking on sandy soils, uneven terrain, or exposure to sun and heat.
If you have questions, please contact us to inquire as we are happy to discuss any possible accommodations.
Does this program offer herbal certification or CEUs?
We provide certificates for our semester course upon request. Please note that there is currently no official certification or licensing for herbalists offered in any state. (See the American Herbalists Guild Legal and Regulatory page for more information.) Continuing education credits (CEUs) are offered through the University of New Mexico for our Ecological Herbalism Series.
