This course is designed to enter the adventurous journey of understanding the plant kingdom. It takes an ecological approach, celebrating the incredible communication and intelligence of plants. It treats plants as living Beings that help us on our Healing Journey. It is not another dry and boring Botany course that just teaches the black and white script of Latin binomials names. Relying heavily on the science of botany and evolution, we tailor it specifically for the Herbalist. Even though this course deals thoroughly with plant identification, botanical keys and structures of plants; it is filled with interesting stories and trivia of how they perform in your life.
Half of the course is designed to give you a good solid understanding of how the science of plants work. The other half relies heavily on the textbook Botany in a Day, so you will be able to identify over 45,000 plants that can be found around North America and Europe. We take the well tested family approach of learning patterns, to help you get a broad view fast.
It comes with a workbook of over 167 pages, over 75 videos and accompanied with a 236 page textbook (Botany in a Day, sold separately).
All of this is designed so the Herbalist can use the most important tools of their trade – plants.
