WILD GATHER : HUDSON VALLEY SCHOOL OF HERBAL STUDIES
+ + + + + + +
This Winter, Wild Gather took some time to put more love, magic and content into our foundations program, Seeds of Herbalism. We're excited to announce that registration is open, and we've added an additional month to the program with 20 more hours of class time!
Seeds of Herbalism is a 5 month foundational program that takes place in and around Hudson, NY. This 60-hour course will provide students with a grounding in Herbal Medicine by developing the skills to work with plants for their own self care and their communities.
We’re excited for the upcoming season and to support our students in building long-lasting relationships with plants. In this program, we'll cultivate an understanding of Botany and the plants of our bio-region, learn medicine making, first-aid & hands-on self care skills. We'll also delve into the spirit world of plants and healing, by exploring our unique ancestries and relationship to plant lore and magic. Additionally, Social and Health Justice are core values for us as facilitators, and our program is rooted in holding space for conversations, learning and growing around the many oppressions people face surrounding health care and its access. With all this and more, students will gain an incredible footing into the beautiful world of Herbalism.
We hope you'll join us in class and registration is now open!
Lastly, we have some additional exciting news! Wild Gather will be inhabiting and breathing life into the Green Trailer at the Basilica this season. We'll be offering workshops, events, classes, pop-ups and more! Our first offering will be an open house for our Seeds of Herbalism program on April 15th from 1-4 p.m. We'll be hanging out, sharing info on the program, slinging hot teas + broths, herbal medicine and crafts. There will be cozy nooks, mini herbal consults, treasures, tarot readings and resins burning, so come welcome in Spring with us!
