The Herbal Academy is bringing back one of our most anticipated events of the year – 5 Days of Giveaways – and this year we’ve got some extra special surprises in store for you along the way. As part of this year’s 5 Days of Giveaways, we are offering up to $1000+ in awesome prizes throughout the week from Monday, June 5th, to Friday, June 9th. Here is the rundown for the week!
Day 1: Monday 6/5 – (Two) One Year Herbarium Memberships
The Herbarium is the Herbal Academy’s online membership program. With an extensive collection of herbal monographs, plant photographs, in-depth articles, educational ebooks, videos, tutorials, and teaching charts, it’s no wonder The Herbarium is a favorite resource for herbal enthusiasts, students, and professionals alike. As a member of The Herbarium community, you will have access to these resources as well as upcoming podcasts, intensives, and a book review library.
Take a peek into The Herbarium with these previews:
Two lucky winners will be chosen at random to become a member. If either person chosen is already a member, an additional year will be added to the member’s account.
Here is what a few of our members say about their Herbarium memberships:
I have to be honest. I’m not one to buy memberships very often, but this is one that I will be updating when it expires… As a homeschooling mother and a budding herbalist, it’s a gold mine of information that I highly recommend. – Kelly, Simple Life Mom
I find that I hold back on using herbs as much as I would like to because I don’t feel fully confident about how to use them. I love that a community of herb-lovers and herb-learners can come together on The Herbarium site and share their knowledge and questions. – Teri, Homestead Honey
…This site is meant to be like an interactive collection of the coolest herb books you’ve ever read and like having a congregation of all your herbal mentors in one place. Candyland for the herb-nerds like me! – Tessa, Homestead Lady

Day 2: Tuesday 6/6 – Free Enrollment in The Herbal Materia Medica Short Course
Launched earlier this year, the Herbal Materia Medica Course is an excellent addition to your herbal studies. Here at the Herbal Academy, we believe in connecting to herbalism via the plants directly in addition to studying herbal theory and academics. We created the Materia Medica Course out of a love for herbs and a desire to encourage you to enrich your studies one herb at a time. The Materia Medica course teaches you to research and compile herbal monographs to curate an individualized Materia Medica that is unique to you. This Course provides a template to work with as you study and begin to better understand your herbs.
We believe that you can build a bond with each plant by focusing on single herbs in this study. This course is not about memorizing flash cards, but gaining a truly comprehensive knowledge and relationship with each plant in your materia medica. This understanding of each plant includes topics such as native range, botanical description, and traditional uses that can also help our academic understanding come alive so we can begin to understand a plant’s “personality,” so to speak.
But the course also goes beyond just explaining how to work through creating a materia medica monograph. We’ve made sure to include plenty of information on herbal safety, researching tips, and activities to help you connect to each plant you choose to document in your journal.
One winner will be randomly selected to win this prize, and will be provided a coupon code of $45 to apply towards enrollment in the Herbal Materia Medica Course. The winner will be announced by email. This prize may also be gifted or used as credit to apply towards another course.
Day 3: Wednesday 6/7 – Goods Shop Favorites
To celebrate the launch of the Herbal Academy Goods Shop last fall, we have curated a package of herbal goodies to share for our Day 3 giveaway! The package will include some Goods Shop favorites like the Plant Identification tote bag and tea towel, beautifully designed Herbalist bookmarks, and the highly coveted Materia Medica Journal for an overall value of $86.
Enter below to win a chance to win this herbal basket! Winners for Day 3 and 4 will be announced on Friday 6/9.
Day 4: Thursday 6/8 – Free Enrollment in the Introductory Herbal Course
The Herbal Academy Introductory Herbal Course is a great first step to set down a firm foundation in herbalism.
