The Herb Corner is offering Reclaiming Our Roots, an introductory class that provides health-promoting herbal skills that have nearly been lost to the modern world. This seven-month learning journey provides an in-depth study of the healing properties of herbs for women, men, children, and pets. It covers all body systems, conditions associated with each system, and beneficial herbs for these systems/conditions. Students learn how to treat non-emergency health problems and gain an understanding of the basics of herbal medicine.
Classes will include how to make teas, tinctures, salves, syrups, compresses, etc. Two herb walks are planned. Cecelia Avitabile, Master Herbalist, says it has always been her desire to provide education in the field of medicinal uses of herbs and foods so people can take charge of their healing process.
Classes are alternate Saturday mornings May through December at The Herb Corner, 277 N. Babcock St. in Melbourne. 15-class package is $300. Tuition is $20 increments, due at each class. Pre registration is required and a $20 non-refundable deposit is required for the book and class project material due May 10. Graduates receive a certificate upon completion.
