The Science and Art of Herbalism Home Study Course
The Science & Art of Herbalism Home Study Course emphasizes self-care, home health, and self-reliance. More than any one system of healing, herbalism offers a low cost alternative to health care. This self-empowering joyful course is recognized as one of the best home study courses available on this subject. Written by Rosemary Gladstar (40 years of herbal wisdom) and facilitated by Penelope Beaudrow (20 years of herbal wisdom).
The Science & Art of Herbalism guides you into the very heart of herbalism. It instills in the student both the necessary skills to practice this ancient healing art as well as a profound understanding of the spirit and essence of herbalism. Penny is your instructor throughout this course, bringing a wealth of herbal knowledge, excellent training skills, and a passionate love of herbs to this course. Written in an inspiring and joyful manner, The Science & Art of Herbalism was designed specifically for students requesting a systematic, in-depth study of herbs but who were unable to attend full time residential herb programs. It contains a depth of knowledge and a lively student/teacher interaction seldom found in home study courses.
Though it thoroughly instills in the student the practical skills necessary to practice herbal home health care, it doesn’t ignore the rich spirit and essence of herbalism. The heart of this course is the development of a deep personal relationship with the plant world.
- Ten lessons in a beautiful, specially designed course binder

Each lesson will have herbs that must be purchased for study purposes (materia medica). The Ginkgo Tree will prepare small quantities to keep costs down for students.
For the new student
Prior to your first meeting we will go over the course in general, give out binder and books, and will hand out herbs for lesson one. Each student will be required to hand in the completed lessons for review and keep up with the material medica for each lesson to receive certificate. The course generally can be done within a year, but we extended the initial registration fee to cover two years of attending classes. There is an additional $100 annual registration fee to any students who have been taking herb course for over two years and just want to come to attend classes.
Therefore, we will have some students just starting, some just finishing up and some that have no intention of ever finishing 🙂
