Herbal Greetings. I warmly invite you to join me on a magical and marvelous journey into the very heart of herbalism. Realizing not everyone could leave home to study with an herbal teacher, I began offering my herbal home study course over 30 years ago and then, an online version a few years ago. The Science & Art of Herbalism has continued to inspire, inform and teach hundreds of students over the past three decades ~ and I continue to be inspired by the dedication and commitment of my students. In this 10-lesson course you will learn all of the basics of herbalism from hands on preparation and medicine making to plant identification and hundreds of herbal recipes for health and healing. Herbalism is for everyone interested in self-health, well being and healing and is easy for everyone to learn. I look forward to sharing your journey into the Green Nations with you. And in this spirit, welcome you to be a part of my online portion of the course. We have been working endlessly to create a new version and are hopeful you will join us on our new platform.With love, Rosemary Gladstar
Welcome to The Science & Art of Herbalism’s Online Campus
The Science and Art of Herbalism Home Study Course is a ten lesson course taken at your own pace, with homework review and guidance provided by carefully selected herbalists and Rosemary herself. 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. Many of our students have written telling us that this course has been transformational and one of the most self- empowering studies they have undertaken.
