The Plant Medicine Series

In our Plant Medicine classes we follow each plant on a journey to understand its place in the world and the way it interacts with the human body and mind. Instruction is focused on growing healthy and beneficial relationships as we work to make effective medicines that honor the plants while helping people.

Each month-long course focuses on a different group of 15-30 plant medicines, covering:

- Botanical identification

- Ecological roles in their native habitat

- Detailed materia medica including contemporary and historical medicinal uses

- Herbal energetics

- Medicine making techniques


What is it like to take an online class at The Elderberry School?

These classes offer live instruction from an herbal practitioner with over 25 years of experience in the field. Active participation is part of what makes live classes special. We engage with one another through discussions, Q&As... maybe even some singing! You can turn your camera and mic off during lectures, but there will be some times where you will be expected to be present with classmates. These classes offer much more involvement and attention than recording and they do not need to be taken in a particular order.

Who can take these classes?

Unless otherwise noted, our Plant Medicine classes are designed for adult students of all levels.
