During the 12-week course (held Wednesdays 6-9 pm), you’ll also learn which body systems are benefited by specific plants, how to make medicine from these local medicinal herbs, and how to identify them in the wild.

The Herbal Education Program starts May 5th through August 18th. Applications are due by April 22. Email Jacoby Ballard at jacoby@thirdroot.org

Cost: $600, scholarships and payment plans available; www.thirdroot.org
