Free Online Introductory Course in Herbal Medicine

Feb 26, 2013 12:23PM

The Herbal Academy of New England, in Woburn, is offering a free online course in herbal medicine this spring. This introductory course is designed to accommodate both distance learners and the growing interest in herbal education.

“Students will be able to study along with us in the comfort of their own homes and on their own schedules,” says Marlene Adelmann, academy director. “And because community is important, we’ll also come together at our scheduled workshops to cook, make medicine and take plant walks.”

Adelmann says that the introductory course was created to build a strong foundation for those interested in herbal medicine. “We’ll introduce students to the world of medicinal plants and discuss the herbalists who led the way by featuring them on our ‘Herbalists We Love’ web pages,” she says. “Students will see new possibilities as they understand what plants have to offer us on a daily basis. For most of us, practicing herbalism goes hand-in-hand with nourishing our bodies with real food, striving for optimal health and practicing good intentions for ourselves, our families and our communities.”

The Herbal Academy of New England will also offer hands-on workshops in two locations this spring for a small fee. Class information can be found at

Location: Online. For more information, call 781-572-4454 or visit
