Here you can find links to the purchase pages for my new distance learning course, Wild Medicine, which aims to teach basic herbalism using our native British and European plants, or at least the ones commonly found which are safe to use. I’ll also be adding modules on herbs found in more specific places, like the seashore, rivers, mountains and meadows, which will be available most likely in 2017. Next year there will be a sequel to the course featuring the more spiritual side of herbalism, which for those who are interested will bookend well with the course material for Wild Medicine and will be named Wortcunning.
Wild Medicine will feature in each monthly lesson:
Detailed profiles on 5 to 6 herbs a month which are commonly found and easy to work with.
Sections on basic anatomy, physiology and a little bit about commonly found ailments and how to treat them.
Red flags – things to watch out for and details on more serious complaints that require medical assistance.
A list of herbs commonly found in the hedgerows and gardens in that particular month, and how to use them, plus recipes.
A list of suggested remedies for each month plus recipes on how to make them.
An assignment which can be done to encourage further learning.
Each month has two options – marked, or unmarked, and will be posted out in a spiral bound booklet. There will also be the extra option to purchase packs of as many of the five discussed herbs as can be sourced, per month. Most recently I have also added a digital download option, meaning you can get the same level of information in a pdf document for a substantially discounted price!
