Payment
Tuition is $1500, which is nonrefundable. We require a $300 deposit within a week of this application. Note that there will be some additional out-of-pocket costs, including gas money, medicine-making supplies and books.

We are some scholarship positions for people of color, indigenous people, and trans and non-binary folks. In our work as white herbalists, we strongly believe in taking steps to address the patterns of colonization and white supremacy our herbal practices, and to help bolster the many forms of resistance to the systems and structures of oppression we live under. This includes trying to make this course more accessible to people of color and trans folks.

We also offer some work-trade positions, to allow folks to offset part of the cost of tuition. Work-trade is compensated at $15/hour. We will be offering work trade for the class in order to make it more accessible for those who would find the cost to be an obstacle.
