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 the whimpering baby up from his nap. The herbal information goes unread and you feel even more confused and behind in your herbal journey.
Herb Folk is an exclusive membership site dedicated to helping herbal-minded folks learn about and use herbs through the study and use of one herb a month.
Not only does this approach cut down on the overwhelm that learning herbs can cause, but it solidifies what you are learning by immediately putting that knowledge to use through hands-on projects.

Herb Folk | (h)ərb fōk |

How Herb Folk Works
HERB INTRODUCTION & MONTHLY SUPPLY LIST
Two weeks before your lessons are available, you will receive an introduction to the herb you’ll be studying over the course of the coming month. Here you’ll receive information on the four “actions” or uses you’ll be learning about the herb, the four projects you’ll be making, and the list of supplies you’ll need to gather before your study begins.
When class starts, you will receive one new herb lesson at the beginning of each week (4 lessons a month). Each lesson covers one use or “action” the herb has as well as anecdotal and evidence-based information to support its use. Questions, comments, or thoughts about each lesson can be left in the comments section. 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!
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.
AFTER THE MONTH
All Herb Folk lessons will remain on the site for two months (the month class is in session and the following month) to give you time to complete lessons and projects. After two months, the lessons will be gone, so make sure you take notes of anything you want to keep track of in a journal or using the free Herb Folk workbook you’ll find inside the membership site.
