Folks often ask how I found my path as an herbalist.
In the beginning, I just wanted something more natural when treating common ailments in my little family. I started reading about herbalism, and I was hooked.
Somewhat on a whim - I attended a class on foraging medicinals at my local library when we lived in Massachusetts and found out there was an apprenticeship program in Boston.
Herbal Academy has a large selection of classes! They have a lovely online community via FB for students as well. I have taken several courses with them and have been really impressed at the content each time. I especially love their beginners course for folks who want to dabble but don't intend to pursue herbalism as a career path. It's a very empowering course for anyone who wants to know the basics and start using herbs and making things in their home.
