Rooted Medicine Circle FAQ

How long will I have access to the course?

All materials can be downloaded, which means you have lifetime access to the materials. You will have digital access to the course site until December 1, 2021. 

What if I can't make the live sessions?

We will record all of the medicine making sessions so that you can watch them at a time that is convenient for you. We recommend coming to the recording with the suggested ingredients so you can make your medicines just as if it were live. Any questions you have can be asked in the Facebook community group.

Can I receive a certificate for the course?

Yes! We offer a certificate upon successful completion of the course. Once you're in the course, be sure to look at the Certificate Path section for details.

What if I don't want to wildcraft, forage, or grow herbs?

Rooted Medicine Circle will help you to ethically harvest and sustainably grow plants. However, foraging and gardening are not required or even expected. 

Even when buying herbs, we want to ensure that the plants were tended, harvested, and processed in loving and regenerative ways. We will offer guidance so that you can procure herbs that are vibrant and sustainably harvested.

Are the plants in the course relevant to where I live?

We intentionally chose common plants that grow in a variety of locations. Assuredly many of them will grow near you. However, it is expected that some of the plants don’t grow near you. We also consider these plants as stepping stones for you to find additional plants near you. For that, we highly recommend getting a plant field guide for your area. 

Herbal monographs and recipes in the course include the following plants: apple, blackberry, burdock, calendula, cherry, chickweed, chicory, citrus, cleavers, comfrey, cottonwood, dandelion, echinacea, elder, elecampane, evergreen conifers, goldenrod, hawthorn, horsetail, lamb's quarters, linden, mallow, maypop, mint, mullein, nettle, oats, Oregon grape, peach, plantain, pomegranate, prickly pear, purslane, raspberry, red clover, rose, self-heal, St. John's wort, violet, wild lettuce, wild mustard, willow, yarrow, yellow dock.

We will also be polling students about what other plants they'd like to see added to the course.

Is this course suitable for me if I live outside the US or in the Southern Hemisphere?

Absolutely! This course is designed to help you connect to the natural world around you whether you live in the Southern or Northern Hemisphere and whether you live in an urban, suburban, or rural environment.

What is the cost of additional herbs or supplies for the course?

Most of the tools necessary for this course can already be found in your kitchen. It is our goal to keep extra costs low. The amount of money you spend on herbs depends on how many herbs you want to buy. To avoid waste, we recommend buying small quantities of herbs no matter your budget. Students get a 10% discount at Mountain Rose Herbs.  

How much time does this course take?

We are expecting this course to take 1–3 hours a week. We know many people are busy and with that in mind, we have intentionally organized the course in a way that is not overwhelming. However, you will get the most out of this course if you consistently devote time to it every week. 

Do you have scholarships for this course?

We don't have a general scholarship fund, but we are offering a certain number of reparations spots for people who identify as Black and/or Indigenous. Please see the reparations offering for more information.
