I listened to your summit talks and really enjoyed them. I really liked what I heard along with your approach and am interested in possibly pursuing training with you. I do have a few questions for you, if you don't mind.

If I decided to take it class by class vs one big chunk, which order do you advise?

Also, I believe you mentioned that you incorporate utilizing herbs for animals as well as humans where appropriate, is that correct?

Do you stick mainly to cats and dogs or do you happen to cover equine care too?

Thanks so much! I look forward to hearing from you.

Blessings

If you are doing the modules one by one, I'd start with Learning the Lingo. After that, you can do them in any order you want. If you decide to enroll in the complete course later let me know. Any modules you buy individually will be credited to your enrollment.

We cover veterinary issues throughout the course. All species are covered though I don't do any horse work in my practice these days.

Will I be able to utilize the information with local native plants? I really like that the instruction includes anatomy and physiology, such vital components of health and healing!
You'll have many of the plants we have in our neck of the woods in Florida. Plus some neat ones we don't have. :)

Again, lots of plant commonality but you'll also have species we can't find locally but will still talk about.

Another thing to consider is that MANY of the plants can be planted and grown throughout the temperate regions of the world, especially the annuals and biennials.

That's reassuring to know!
I'm looking up any local names for some of the plants Doc has mentioned. *Fingers crossed*

Thank you!

We have several people that are taking the school that live across the country and across the world. We are working on producing materials that will allow our remote folks the opportunity to learn the hands on things as well.

We have videos of plant walks and workshops so that even those who can't attend personally can benefit.

I have a question: do you offer a certificate of completion after someone has completed the course? (Not a degree, or even certificate of achievement or licensure, just something that says they took the course.)

Thanks
