“I knew I would learn a lot in the first year Foundations of Western Herbalism course, but I had no idea I would have so much fun, too! Having the hands on experience of making tinctures, salves, and even herbal gummy bears was invaluable. Cheryl and all of the teachers were a treasure trove of information and most importantly, experience.”

“I’ve studied at Gathering Thyme for the past 12 months. I began with the summer Handcrafted Herbalism program and fell in love! I learned so much during the weekend courses and realized how much there is still to learn - a lifetime’s worth! So I continued on to the 9 month Explorations in Traditional Western Herbalism course. Cheryl is an incredible teacher. She creates a comfortable and secure learning environment where I felt safe to challenge myself and make mistakes. My skills as an herbalist have come a long way and as I embark on the next journey of the intermediate level course, I’m excited to see where this path leads next. Cheryl and Judy are exceptional teachers who help their students learn and grow on all levels. I can’t thank them enough!”
