What To Expect
Please be willing to make a one-year commitment to this program. We will meet weekly for 3 hours via video chat, and apprentices will be expected to make time for 3-5 hours of homework per week. Each participant will meet quarterly with the instructor in order to assess and develop learning goals. Apprentices who have completed all assignments and have participated in all the sessions will receive a Certificate of Completion and be eligible for further study as an intern or clinical apprentice with Linda Conroy of Moonwise Herbs.
The first section of this program is focused on incorporating herbs into daily life to promote health. Subsequent sessions build on this knowledge and participants develop a first aid kit, learning to apply herbs for common injuries and ailments. Additionally, everyone will learn to harvest plants through the seasons. Generally speaking, this means leaves and buds in the spring, flowers in the summer, seeds, and roots in the fall, and from the pantry in the winter. Plant medicine for specific body systems will be discussed and a list of herbs for each system will be developed by the group. Participants who wish to receive additional guidance can work with Linda for 2-3 years.
