Herbal Education

Free Herbalism Project

You are invited to a series of FREE lectures and workshops by world-renowned herbalists!

Mountain Rose Herbs hosts this free educational event several times a year. Each gathering features a different herbalist and topic of botanical interest. From aromatherapy to wild foods, herb walks to medicine making, these free classes are our gift to the community. Not only is every event FREE to the public, we also serve up free organic tea!

Want to show your support? Each event is a fundraiser for the featured herbalist’s school, free clinic, or non-profit organization through the sale of t-shirts, DVDs, herbal books, and other goodies.

Join us to sip free organic tea, learn the ways of natural health and healing, and bring your friends!

Herbal Schools

This is our handpicked list of teachers and schools that we’ve had personal experiences with and fully recommend. Many are longtime friends and associates who have been teaching for decades, or teachers we’ve studied with over the years. However, this is by no means a comprehensive list of all the reputable teachers in the country, but rather the schools we extend our student discount to for community support.
