2021 Winter & Spring Classes + Events

Albuquerque Herbalism offers a variety of classes including both one-day specialty topics as well as in-depth series. Our classes often fill up ahead of time, so please plan ahead and register early.

  • Join our Herbalism Series as a semester enrollment that includes our core program, as well as all four one-day specialty courses.
  • Or register for single-day specialty classes or short series as listed below.

COVID Information:  We anticipate ongoing concerns through the winter/spring semester and plan to continue holding classes in our live online interactive format. If conditions permit, we hope to offer some in-person field classes in May and June. We will post updates through our newsletter, Facebook page, and website. For students outside the Albuquerque area, we will maintain an online option for this entire semester.

From Our Students

“I wanted to let you know how much the classes I have taken with you have meant to me. I now have the confidence to take what you’ve given me and continue my own home studies and to experiment on my own – something I never would have done before your classes. I am so grateful to have herbs and herbalism as a regular part of my life now and that has happened because of you and your very accessible way of teaching and the affordability of your classes. I am indebted to you more than I am to any book or online blog or website I’ve ever read or seen, because you made it real for me and gave me the tools to do this on my own.”

“I was so very moved this evening to hear your words around our beautiful Bosque. I can’t even describe to you how much your words meant, hearing from your perspective, its story, plant connections, relationships, and also its waning….I was so moved! I have heard about you a long time from mutual friends about taking your classes and was so excited I finally got in!…Truly, your words and data/information, but how your heart speaks to it, is mind-blowing and moving. Big hugs and thanks again for teaching our community your wonderful class…and doing the work you do!!”
