Just wanted to pass on the word to this community that the Lifelong Learning Center now also offers classes in Herbal Medicine. In addition to their already wonderful selection of classes, both diverse and very accessible, I am offering a couple of Beginning Herbal Medicine classes starting end of April.
This class starting next week still has a few openings:

I just found the listings under the "Special Interests" area - boy, you sure cannot beat the prices!! Do they ever do things down in the Bitterroot by chance? This would be amazing to share if this came in this direction! THANKS!
Thanks Lisa! Yes, the Lifelong Learning Center is great for all they offer, I really like them. I do not think that LLC offers classes in the Bitterroot though, because it is part of the Missoula Co. Public School System. I would certainly be happy to teach herbal medicine classes in the Bitterroot as well. Feel free to contact me if you like. Best,
Here is another upcoming class at the Lifelong Learning Center, which still has a few spaces available:
