a living tradition

Throughout history, people around the world have depended on the plants around them as medicine for their bodies, minds, and spirits. In modern times, as more and more people become dissatisfied with the idea of using chemical drugs and invasive procedures unless absolutely unavoidable, there is a resurgence of the healing arts based in the vitality of the natural world.

Come study and consult with practicing herbalists, whose work is rooted in Traditional Western Herbalism, informed by science, inspired by the beauty and magic of the living Earth, and grounded in our own direct experience working with the medicine of the wild, feral, and cultivated plants that grow around us all. In keeping with the vitalist tradition of holistic healing, we include traditional nutrition and movement therapies in our practice.

Our school and office are centered in Boston, Massachusetts, though we teach classes, speak at conferences, and work with folks across the country.
