Whether you are a beginner or have been studying for a while, if you want to focus on local wild plants and immersing yourself in our botanical bioregion while learning directly from the plants, this is the class for you. What we will NOT cover in this class is all the fundamentals of herbalism. If you are a beginner and you want to learn ALL about herbalism, please sign up for Level 1: Herbal Foundations.
Our main focus will be the practical applications of local plant medicine. Classes will include: plant identification, practical experience using a botanical key, organoleptic testing using our 5 senses, communing with plant consciousness, discovering bioregional plant guilds, and plant family recognition. This class will be held outdoors in various wild and/or cultivated places around Austin and central Texas. Carpooling will be coordinated when class locations are finalized. We will meet for 17 Saturdays and 2 Campouts from October 2020 through May 2021.
Completion of Level 1: Herbal Foundations (or an equivalent herbalism program) OR related experience in herbal medicine making, gardening, permaculture or naturalism. If you are brand new to herbalism, please check out our Level 1: Herbal Foundations class. Level 1 and Level 2 meet together on Saturdays. If you have questions regarding your qualifications, please contact us.
