The study of individual herbs is a core subject in any herbology course. Contemporary courses on this subject follow a superficial theoretical approach. This course encourages a practical ‘hands-on’ approach called ‘plant journaling’ to acquiring a working knowledge of herbs.
This course is intended for the serious hobbyist – and for aspiring and professional herbologists – who want to use a systematic approach to acquiring a working knowledge of individual herbs.
There are no prerequisites for participation in this course. Doing Basic Botany for Herbologists, or a similar basic botany course, either before or concurrently is recommended.
Upon completion of Plant Journaling for Family Herbalists you will be able to:
- Apply the Plant Journaling System to record and classify herbology information.
- Adapt the Plant Journaling System to suit your own individual needs.
- Compile your own Family Herbal (materia medica), consisting of detailed scientific herb monographs, for personal and professional use.
- Select reliable sources of herbology information.
