Completely New Revised Course

Due to repeated requests from past and current students, we are pleased to announce a new ongoing extension to our existing herbal diploma, taking students
into part one of a new, revised year two – one week day per month for 10 months. Although there is a curriculum, much of the year’s work will be based upon
an expansion of work already completed with particular emphasis on the needs and requirements of the class group.

During the year, the class will be concentrating on wild harvesting, individualised herbal remedies and product development. Students will be working more
proportionally with understanding the energetics of local, commonly available plants, coming from the same ground and locations as we ourselves do.
New, exciting, plants and materials not worked with before. New research, new herbs, new products and remedies, incorporating new in depth ways of creating
unique formulations contributing to greater understanding and raised levels of wholeness with respect to each students personalized product ranges. In this regard
the year’s work will be highly individualised to each student’s level of intuition, plant insights and unique preparation forms.

Open only to students who have completed our herbal diploma, year one and/or year two. Particularly suited to those students needing a refresher and those
who feel the need for further development and knowledge, in creating more medicines, skincare or healthcare ranges. Nothing remains static – least of all our knowledge
and awareness of our wonderful, healing, nourishing and sustaining plant allies, who benefit us from the cradle to the grave. Please enrol early as this year’s class
only has a few vacancies left.
