The Sensory Herb Apprenticeship
September 25 @ 5:00 pm - September 27 @ 3:15 pm
Learn to prepare and use your own herbal remedies created directly from nature on our innovative herbal health training course.
The Sensory Herb Apprenticeship course will introduce you to plants to use when you or your family are ill, and deepen your connection to the land by getting to know the herbs that grow around you.
Whether you live in the countryside, or your only contact with plants is in a flowerpot, we will take you step by step into the world of herbs.
Our residential apprenticeship in the beautiful Dorset countryside gives you the opportunity to work hands-on with over 50 medicinal plants which grow on site. Understand off-the-shelf herbal remedies and alternatives to pharmaceutical medicines. Learn about herbs of the hedgerow, meet a new world of medicinal plants and a community of like-minded earth-lovers!
This is a year-long seasonal journey with 100 hours of contact time.
Established in 2009, the apprenticeship is designed to give you the knowledge and skills you need to incorporate herbal medicine into your daily life. Your senses, heart and intellect will be opened to the ancient, magical and practical art that is herbal medicine.
Half your time on the course will be spent working hands-on with plants and the other half will give you the technical and medical grounding to apply herbs to healing.
