Botany for Herbalists is designed as an adventurous journey with plants. The goal: to understand the plant king/queendom–but through the lens of herbal medicine.
Botany for Herbalists takes an ecological approach, and celebrates the incredible communication and intelligence of plants.
This is not another dry and boring Botany course that just teaches the black and white script of Latin binomial names. Learn to see plants as living Beings that help us on our Healing Journey.
Relying heavily on the science of botany and evolution, we tailor this course specifically for the Herbalist. Even though we deal thoroughly with plant identification, botanical keys and structures of plants, it is also filled with interesting stories of how we can interact and develop relationships with them.
Tell Me More about Botany for Herbalists
Half of the Botany for Herbalists 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 of the plant families 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.
