Tell me all about The Ginkgo Tree Herbal Course
The Ginkgo Tree Herbal Course emphasizes self-care, home health, and self-reliance. You will learn how herbalism can offer a low-cost alternative to your family’s health care. This self-empowering, joyful home study course offers a “hands on” approach and is recognized as one of the best courses available on this subject. Herbal Educator and Course Facilitator, Penelope Beaudrow will be your instructor throughout your herbal journey, bringing a wealth of herbal knowledge, excellent training skills, and a passionate love of herbs.
The Ginkgo Tree Herbal Course 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. This course 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. Students are welcome to attend the “hands on” components to obtain further knowledge and skills, but are not a requirement for certificate.
Though the course 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.
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
Meet with Penelope to go over the course and course material, receive binder and books, and herbs for lesson one. This meeting can also be a phone meeting, with course material being shipped. Each student will be required to hand in or email the completed lessons for review and keep up with the material medica for each lesson to receive certificate. Attending the “hands on” component is not necessary for certificate but encouraged to the student. The “hands on” component will teach you skills and a deeper understanding of working with herbs, with new classes each month. Attending monthly classes and spending time with “like minded” individuals will also spark many new friendships. All students must RSVP for the monthly class, this provides attendance numbers so we can have the correct amount of supplies for the evening. Monthly class information can be found on our website blog https://theginkgotree.ca/blog/ or on our face book page https://www.facebook.com/pg/theginkgotree/posts/ a week out from class. 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 or finish course. Therefore, we will have some students just starting, some just finishing up and some that have no intention of ever finishing and guests 🙂
