Our goal is to train individuals in the Native American tradition – providing knowledge and skills, and nurturing the individual student’s talents. We approach herbalism from an indigenous perspective; offering a non-Western, non-scientific perspective of viewing medicine, health, the plants and the earth.

The plant people were the first beings, our elders and teachers, and hold the oldest knowledge. Plants were also people’s first medicine and we are committed to passing on this knowledge. We offer a full-time four month certificate program as well as part-time courses. Class size is kept small to ensure a productive learning environment.
