Fancy being an Herbalist?

Calling yourself an herbalist should mean that you have had training in anatomy, physiology, materia medica, holistic views of the body, and more. Training is the key to being able to skillfully help others with plant medicine.

Lily offers three years of layered learning for those that want to heal others. Certificate of each level offered, applications can be made to AHG for RH mentorship program after level three.

Now enrolling for classes starting March 2023 in Clarksburg (near Morgantown), West Virginia! This class makes a great gift for the herb lover in your life who dreams of being a healer.

Who takes an herb class? Many different kinds of people have been my students. Some are practitioners of some sort: nurses, dentists, MDs, midwives, or massage therapists. Many have never had anatomy or physiology experience and are absolute beginners. All are curious, love nature, and want to help people. The world needs more herbalists. Join us!

Advanced modules (clinical, cultivation, starting an herb business, education, and/or apothecary) can happen in the apprenticeship program after successful completion of this class. 


These classes mix lecture and video with hands-on experience: medicine making, outdoor classes, and field trips.

Class sizes are limited and the classes fill up. I do generally create a waitlist. 

A deposit, payment in full, or a payment plan in good standing guarantees your place in the class. 

$1200 tuition for each module is non-refundable. Pay in full or Lily can finance it for you.
Financed payment plans are:
$172.50 for 8 months or $138 for 10 months (15% financing).
