Thanks for visiting HerbRally!
The primary purpose of this website is to provide a resource for folks interested in herbal medicine, so you can learn about events happening in your area. From the basic neighborhood herb walk, to the weekend retreat, or the full-on symposium, you’ll be able to easily see what’s happening, when, and where. I have also started a list of schools that feature an herbal education curriculum. I believe if you want to take your knowledge to the next level, you must go beyond reading books and seek out a teacher/mentor. Please check out one of these fine schools in your neck of the woods. If you are unable to attend a brick and mortar school, another great option is to try one of the distance learning courses offered. If you know of an event or school that’s not on this list, I’d love to include it! Please contact me here with the necessary details. HerbRally pledges to donate 20% of all sales (affiliate and product) to the HerbRally Scholarship Fund. The goal is to send one student per year to attend an herbal conference or apprenticeship.
A little about me…
As the Events and Outreach Coordinator for Mountain Rose Herbs, folks often ask me “what’s happenin’?” Now with my own up-to-date, accurate event page, I can point them in the right direction. I love herbalism because I feel it’s one of the best ways for us to reconnect with nature. When I first got into herbalism, I read a lot of books and bought a lot of dried herb—which was great—but I knew there was more out there. So I registered for Columbines School of Botanical Studies in my hometown of Eugene, OR. After taking its two-year apprenticeship, I never looked at the herbs (actual plants!) and nature in the same way. My hope is that this website will serve as a conduit to your herbal education and paradigm shift.
