The Gathering Thyme School of Western Herbalism scholarship fund was created in 2015 to provide need-based scholarships to low income members of our community. We honor a culture of inclusion in the practice of Western Herbalism and encourage members from diverse communities to apply. 

To apply, send an Email to with the following information:

  • Your name, address and email

  • Which program, class or workshop you wish to attend

  • A letter describing your financial situation and reasons for applying as well as a brief essay on how you wish to better serve your family, friends or community.

We look for individuals who are committed to an herbal education and a burning desire to serve their community.  Recipients are asked to intern in our school gardens or herb shop a minimum of 4 hours per month as we find the reciprocity fosters greater follow-through and dedication.   

Applications for our long-term herbal programs must be received at least 2 months prior to the start of class. 

Scholarship options are open to students for 2 weeks after receipt of acceptance.  If you are unable to enroll in the 2 week timeframe, you are invited to reapply.
