Foundations of Herbal Healing
First Steps on a Lifetime Journey to Knowing the Plants and the Healer Within
We welcome you to join kindred spirits on a green adventure that will immerse your heart, mind, and soul in the holistic art and science of herbal medicine. This seven month course taught on our working farm is for anyone wanting to use herbs for health and well-being. The program will provide you with the practical skills necessary to become a home herbalist and set the foundation for those that aspire to become herbal practitioners. People well-versed in other healing arts find our Foundations program a holistic complement to their own work. The Science and Art of Herbology (a home study course written by Rosemary Gladstar) will be used to augment the hands-on learning here at the farm.
Hands on learning
with the plants.
Come learn potent harvesting
techniques on the farm!
We look forward to sharing our love and knowledge of herbs, health and healing and in offering you this opportunity to strengthen your connection to the Creator, the Earth and the healer within. A completion certificate with class hours documented will be awarded to those students that meet all of the course requirements.
Dates: We'll meet one weekend a month through the main growing season, so you can learn from the plants as they flow through the seasons. The dates for 2018 are May 26-27, June 23-24, July 14-15, August 11-12, September 15-16, October 27-28, and November 10-11.
Herbs and vegetables together create
a diverse garden landscape.

"If there's a person who embodies the essence of a community herbalist, it is Nancy Phillips. She's been one of our most popular teachers at Sage Mountain and has assisted me in my Herbal Apprentice Programs, the Science & Art of Herbology home study course, and at the New England Women's Herbal Conference and International Herb Symposium. Quite simply, I'm enthralled by her way of life, her beautiful gardens, her farm and family and encourage any one wishing a more in-depth knowledge of herbalism or seeking a more harmonious way of living to study with Nancy. You'll be delighted you did!"

"Nancy and Michael Phillips' Foundations course is a great start for anyone who wishes to study the herbal way of life. I was able to escape the regular world and enjoy a sustainable, sensational, herbal world during our weekends. This class goes beyond anything you can get from a book!"
