 “The Science & Art of Herbalism is not a clinical level program, nor is the focus only on medical herbalism. Rather, the course builds a firm foundation upon which to continue to build one’s herbal education. It guides the student into the many areas and aspects of herbs providing pathways to deepen one’s awareness. The students complete the course with a well-rounded and grounded herbal education. The course is geared towards the beginner/intermediate students of herbalism, though I’ve had many knowledgeable well-trained herbalists sign up. They use the course material as a review and/or to better organize their own source of knowing and information. The Science & Art of Herbalism provides a systematic, comprehensive way to organize ones studies and gives excellent resources and techniques for doing so.” - Rosemary Gladstar

An herbal instructor throughout the North Shore of Massachusetts, Sheilagh has co-taught an apprenticeship program at The Green Witch School of Herbalism for over 10 years and offered workshops at The International Herb Symposium, The New England Women’s Herbal Conference and Herbstalk. She is currently a teacher for The Science and Art of Herbalism on-line course. As a free-lance writer, she has contributed pieces to The Herb Quarterly and various herbal - based blogs.
