You’re reading the books, drinking herbal tea, stocking your essential oil and herbal apothecary and pinning all things natural and herbal. You really want to use herbs to take charge of your family’s health naturally, but you don’t have ANY free time to learn and it seems very overwhelming to “do it all.” So you close Pinterest to get back to the responsibilities of daily life. The herbal information goes unread and you feel even more confused and behind in your herbal journey.
Herb Folk is an exclusive program dedicated to helping herbal-minded folks learn about and use herbs through the study and use of one herb at a time in an enjoyable, practical way.
Not only does this approach cut down on the overwhelm that learning about herbs can cause, but it solidifies what you are learning by immediately putting that knowledge to use through hands-on projects.

HERB INTRODUCTION & MONTHLY SUPPLY LIST
After registration, you will instantly receive a Welcome email from me that gives you more information about the upcoming herb study, offers tips to help you get prepared, and gives you access to the free Herb Folk Journal so you take your study a bit deeper if you’d like. (Be sure to check your promotions/spam folder if you don’t see the email!)
Your Introductory lesson will arrive in your inbox the following day. In this lesson, you will learn about the energetic and safety information of your plant, what to expect from the upcoming lessons, and what supplies you will need to stock up on to make your weekly projects. You will have 2 weeks to print the Herb Folk Journal and source all of your supplies for the study so you are ready to go when your lessons begin to arrive in your inbox.
Two weeks after you register, class will start! You will receive one new herb lesson at the beginning of each week (4 lessons total). These lessons will come directly to your inbox (be sure to check your promotions/spam folder if you don’t see them!). Each lesson covers one use or action the herb has as well as folk and science-based information to support its use. Questions, comments, or thoughts about each lesson can be left in the Herb Folk Facebook group. I will be responding to you there, and I encourage you to respond to each other as well. Remember, Herb Folk is a community that helps and supports one another! If you choose to not join me in the Herb Folk Facebook group, you can email me directly.
Alongside your weekly lessons, you will get access to specific herbal projects that support the lesson you just learned. Each project is designed to be made by you and used over the course of the week so you can see the herb work first-hand. To get the most out of Herb Folk, it’s important that you set aside time to complete these projects as they will bring the herb to life and help you retain what you’ve learned about the herb you’ve just studied. However, if you are unable to complete each project, it will not impede your study. It’s simply an extra way to apply the lesson to your life and embed what you just learned in your memory.
AFTER THE MONTH
At the end of a monthly Herb Folk study, you will receive one last lesson that recaps the month’s study and includes a downloadable PDF file of all the lessons and recipes for you to keep. You can print this and put it in a notebook, or you can save it on your computer for future reference. You will also be added to my newsletter list where you will receive my bi-monthly letters. This will help you to keep up with all things Growing Up Herbal and to be notified of future Herb Folk studies. You are more than welcome to opt out of these emails if you wish.
