We have now confirmed the dates of The Spirit of Herbs and Advanced Spirit of Herbs workshops for summer 2017. The Spirit of Herbs will be Sunday July 30 to Friday August 4. Advanced Spirit of Herbs will be Sunday July 9 to Friday July 14. Both of these workshops are now open for registration. Space is limited. It is best to register early because they often fill up.
Making Oil Extractions and Making Medicinal Creams have been scheduled for Saturday March 11 and Saturday April 15, respectively. Making Herbal Tinctures will be held later in the year. These workshops will be open for registration soon.
As of January 1st Jill Kirchmann, our dear friend and our Student Liaison and Administrative Coordinator since the inception of the online program, will be leaving Living Earth. Jill has been an indispensable part of our team! We will miss her, as will our students. Jill moved to Norway in 2015 and has been working from there since that time. We send Jill lots of love and wish her all the best as her new life continues to unfold in Norway!
We would also like to welcome Lianna Vargas, who will be taking over Jill's role at Living Earth. Lianna is a clinical herbalist and currently a board member of the Ontario Herbalists Association (OHA) who did field work with Michael a few years ago and worked with Monika and Michael in the OHA before they retired from the board in 2015. Lianna has the diverse skill set necessary to take on this role. We look forward to working with her as a member of our team!
The 2017 dates of the Herbal Field Studies field workshops will be posted by the end of January. Anyone who has participated in these workshops in previous years or who has completed the Herbal Field Studies Introductory Class may participate in the field workshops.
