Courses at Berkeley Herbal Center are taught in English at a college level. Homework assignments involve reading and writing reports and assessments. Generally, students need 1–2 hours of study per hour of class to complete the course on time. Are you able to structure this into your schedule? Do you see any other challenges to completing your education that we should know about? *

Our classes involve gentle day hikes and field trips. Do you have any physical challenges that would make this difficult for you? If so, how can we help create a learning environment that works for you?
Your answer
As herbalists in training, we will be consuming herbs in many form including organic sugar- based alcohol extract (1 dropper per day), organic or wild‐harvested dried herbs for teas or steams, beeswax‐based salve, and oil‐based creams. Do you have an allergy that will prevent you from using the basic materials in our apothecary? If yes, please explain. *
