Welcome! Wisdom of the Herbs School offers unique experiential programs embracing the local herbaceous plants, trees and shrubs. Participants learn through herb walks, hands-on wild harvesting and preparation of wild edibles and herbal home remedies, and profound communion with Nature, all with intention and gratitude. The emphasis is on integration of the intuitive and the scientific, in a relaxed, magical and grounded atmosphere.

We offer two Certification Programs: Wisdom of the Herbs 2019, a group experience meeting one weekend each month from April to October, and the Wisdom Tutorial Certification Program, a one-on-one, 50 hour experience, sessions arranged to suit your schedule, both In-Person and Home study. Tutorials may also be taken individually.

Graduate credit may be earned through our partnership with Castleton University. Participants in Wisdom of the Herbs 2019 may earn 5 graduate credits, or 3 credits for the Wisdom Tutorial Certification Program.

The profound challenges of these changing times offer profound opportunities as well. We believe that the skills and perspective offered at Wisdom of the Herbs School provide an excellent foundation for building personal and community resilience, honoring our joyful interconnection with Nature.

Annie McCleary, Director and Herbalist

Photosynthesis is a transmutation of Love.
It is an energetic magic that
suffuses the world with a vibrant emerald energy,
vibrating first within the cells of the plants,
and continuing to vibrate within the cells
of the beings that eat them.
