I can’t thank you enough!

Demetria Clark, I can’t thank you enough for making it possible for me to attend your school. Thank You for all you do, all your hard work for putting together such a awesome class for Certified Herbalist.

I loved every minute of learning. Totally loved all the hands-on assignments, making tinctures, salves, herbal teas, infusions and decoctions. Growing and harvesting herbs, weeds, flowers and roots, it is so amazing to know I can harvest and make my own natural medicine.

Well worth the time and money!

I’ve completed the Certified Herbalist course and am happy with what I’ve learned. The course required a variety of different methods of learning including books, hands-on creation of different applications, and a broad curriculum of modalities. I loved that most of the course was based on the sciences and nature. An added bonus is the online discussion group for research and feedback and the quick response to questions and homework assignments. Well worth the time and money!
