Video Recording: Community Herbalist Workshop with Laura Ash


The world needs more herbalists. 

A Community Herbalist is someone who takes care of their community, family, neighbors, and themselves, by crafting herbal medicine with medicinal plants, either local or beyond, for common ailments (cough, cold, flu, cuts, etc). A Community Herbalist marries traditional healing practices with modern research.

In this class with Laura Ash, Clinical Herbalist for 16 years, owner of Scarlet Sage, and founder of Verse, we will get a chance to talk about 5 herbs to support building immunity, cold and flu season, and discuss what is most important to the community as we shift seasons. You will get recipes for this upcoming cold/flu season, including teas, medicinal broth, and Elderberry syrup. 

This class is an introduction of what the 9 month Verse Community Herbalist Certification will dive deep into.

Laura grew up in the Sierras of Northern California, focusing on the arts and connecting with nature. Laura has been practicing western herbal medicine since 2000, and is a lifelong learner.

After living overseas in the UK and East Africa, Laura has felt a sacred obligation to support Indigenous People in their health sovereignty, and in 2011 she started a nonprofit called Herbal Anthropology Project which has protected Maasai Traditional Medicine in Tanzania through the framework of the Traditional Knowledge Division of the World Intellectual Property Organization.

In 2015, Laura acquired The Scarlet Sage Herb Co. in San Francisco, continuing the legacy of the iconic healing store, and in 2018 launched The Scarlet Sage School of Traditional Healing Arts (SOTHA).

Laura founded Land of Verse, an online wellness education marketplace in 2021 to bring trusted voices of healing arts into the forefront. As a Masterclass for healers, Verse classes are poised to bring vetted voices to the masses, engaging people of all levels to embark on their journey into the healing arts.

Laura lives in Oakland with her wife, two children, and puppy.
