Hi there fellow permies, I was wondering if anyone had taken Doc Jones courses and what their thoughts were, I am looking into taking classes and found his information on Permies. If you have any other suggestions I would love to read them.

What classes are you talking about? I am enrolled in his on line class and have taken his in person classes as well.

I have also been receiving personal instruction from him for 4 - 5 years now.

Where are you located?

I've been to every one of the classes and thought they were a great value for the cost....of course they let me in for free because I'm the teacher so I may not be the best on to ask.

We have a strong emphasis on herbal self-sufficiency and strongly emphasize locally available plants whenever such are available.

One of the unique aspects of the program is that in addition to being a clinical herbalist, I'm also a practicing veterinarian. This offers two advantages, first and most obvious is that in addition to learning traditional herbalism, you will also be taught veterinary applications.

Secondly, as a veterinarian, I am able to take on cases most herbalists would not ethically be able to address such as rattlesnake bites, gangrene, serious wounds, sepsis, severe organ diseases etc... My veterinary experiences have allowed me to do a lot of things herbalists haven't done for a hundred years. As a result of my veterinary cases, I'm able to transfer that knowledge and experience to my human clients as well.

We try to make things fun and easy to understand.

Holler if you ever have questions.

Try 100 things. 2 will work out, but you will never know in advance which 2. This tiny ad might be one:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
