Now enrolling for 3-month or 8-month class September 2018 – May 2019. Class begins on September 10th, 2018 and will run through May 2019. Full schedule of dates posted below.

ABOUT THE COURSE:

This course is taught by Ginger Webb and various wonderful guest and level 2 student teachers throughout the year.

Level 1 Foundations Class involves both experiential and intuitive learning as well as lecture style and scientific observation out in the field. Ginger is passionate about connecting people with herbs, and is dedicated to empowering a generation of new herbalists and furthering the craft of herbalism to help the planet.

The 8-month Herbal Foundations Program is the primary program being offered by Ginger Webb and the Sacred Journey School of Herbalism. We have updated the curriculum to include as much outdoor time as possible! The program includes Sunday classes (outdoors as the weather permits), Monday night classroom hours, two camping trip weekends, and two local harvest days. The full program has been expanded to 200+ hours.

The course includes lectures, experiential learning, medicine making, botanical field identification, plant families, wild harvesting, intuitive plant meditation (“plant sitting”), chakras, and a holistic perspective on human physiology and wellness. It also includes weekend retreats of wild-harvesting and medicine making, a special project of your own choosing, and the opportunity for personal herbal mentoring with Ginger.

Can’t commit to the full 8 month course? Herbal Foundations is now divided into 2 semesters. You have the option to register for one or both:

Section 1: Going Deep- Earth Herbs and the Root Chakra (3 months)

We’ll have a class camping trip the weekend of October 13th – 15th where we’ll spend lots of quality time outdoors with local plants at Garner State Park.
