The smell of new notebooks, freshly sharpened pencils, and clean slates fill the air this time of year. The back-to-school season is about a fresh start whether you are just beginning school or have long since graduated. Although our courses are available all year round, here at the Herbal Academy, we are pleased to join in the spirit of the season by offering a special month-long mini-series challenge. If you were with us last year, you may remember our back-to-school series on plant studies. This year, we are embracing the coming of the new school season with a four-week Herbalist Journey Series.
Starting tomorrow, we will take you through the steps to kickstarting your voyage into the wild and wonderful world of herbalism. For those who are new to herbalism, this will be an opportunity to draw out a map to aid you in your expedition. For more experienced herbalists, this will serve as a refresh on your herbal path and allow you to evaluate where you are in your education and where you are going. The herbal journey is lifelong and always changing so we hope you join us in this exciting discovery challenge!
Along the way, we will provide you with the tools you need to plan your path, including educational advice from Herbal Academy instructors and renowned herbalists like Rosemary Gladstar, Aviva Romm, and Herbal Academy director, Marlene Adelmann. Read on for a preview of the coming month, and if you haven’t already, be sure to sign up for our newsletter to be a part of this exciting opportunity.
