Community Herbalist Workshop with Laura Ash
What makes a Community Herbalist?
A Community Herbalist is someone who takes care of their community by creating herbal medicine with local plants while supporting traditional healing practices with modern research.
In this class, we will explore the herbal wisdom and practices of the community herbalist.
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.
This class is an introduction to what the Verse 2023 Herbalist Certifications dive into.
