The Bioregional Herbalism Certificate course will be taught by Linda Conroy, founder of Moonwise Herbs and the Midwest Women’s Herbal Conference. We have had the pleasure of hosting Linda Conroy for several weekend workshops in 2013 and 2014 and have enjoyed her energy, teaching style, and wealth of knowledge. It is with much excitement that we invite Linda back in 2015 to teach a this course.

The TRI Bioregional Herbalism Certificate Course will focus on teaching students how to incorporate herbs into their daily life to promote health and to develop the skills to use herbs for everyday ailments and injuries. Students will be led on plant walks where they will learn to identify and harvest herbs seasonally for food and medicine. In the classroom, students will be guided through the process of transforming plants into herbal preparations. Each weekend includes instruction, plant walks, hands on projects, snacks and time to reflect and ask questions.

The course will meet one weekend a month for eight months beginning March 14th and ending October 18th.  Payment plans available.  Click here for full course details.

Herbs for Nourishment and Healing

A few weeks ago we hosted Linda Conroy at The Resiliency Institute to teach Herbs for Health & Nourishment and Herbal Remedy Making.  Linda shared her wealth of knowledge as a bioregional herbalist and empowered us to incorporate more herbs into our diets.

We learned about the nutrient density in a variety of plants, most of which we consider weeds.  These plants contain vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, proteins, phytoestrogens and phytosterols, starches, simple and complex sugars, bioflavonoids, carotenes, and essential fatty acids.  We discussed the traits of weeds – resilient, adaptable, and flexible – and realized these are the same traits we need for health.
