Community Education Program

The Community Education Program is part of East Bay Herbals' mission to provide accessible and relatable information about herbal medicine and holistic nutrition to the community.  All classes are free or low-cost and are open to the public. We aim to offer at least one free class a season, but feel free to check back on the site for recent additions as they come.

The Herbal Path / 9-Month Herbal Apprenticeship

Pleasant Hill, Ca (Classes held at Rodger's Ranch Historic Farmhouse)

September 21, 2023 - June 6, 2024 / Price on Event Page
(meets monthly w/ weekend field tips)

Are you ready to embrace the inner healer that was always meant to be? Join Clinical Herbalist, Holistic Nutritionist, Biologist, and Energetic Healer, Anna Marie Beauchemin, on a 9-month journey to re-ignite the spark of healing intuition and herbal wisdom that you were innately born with. In this immersive 9-month program we will learn to walk the Herbal Path using herbs, foods, seasonality, and earth-centered herbal practices to nourish our lives and the lives of those we love. Together we will learn the art of home-based herbal healing, herbal gardening, cooking,  plant medicine making, traditional practices, and above all, how to connect to our own inner wisdom and intuition when approaching our health and lives. Classes will take place in a historic farmhouse and students will get to experience the old ways of learning in herbal gardens and making plant medicines in the rustic farmhouse kitchen in our experiential lessons.
