"I thoroughly enjoyed this course! Elizabeth instructs in a clear and informative manner, and you can really tell she is passionate about herbs! She is also very responsive and helpful with any questions you may have. I especially enjoyed learning how to make infused oils, tinctures, etc., and have been inspired to make my own, which I am doing now! Even if you already have some herbal-related knowledge as I did, I'm certain you will gain further insight from this course! Thank you!" - Brockton

"As a beginner that was a great place to start learning about how to utilize the herbs and plants in my garden. All of Elizabeth's instructions are super easy to follow and there is nothing complicated or intimidating here. Elizabeth kindly answered some of my questions and had good insight to my concerns about borage. I am thrilled with this course and I am excited to get started." - Lisa

Hi, I’m Elizabeth Heck, herbalist, author, and best selling online instructor.

Working with plants has been a big part of my life from a very early age. My involvement with these green allies has taken me through many stages, including work as a naturalist, plant conservationist, land steward, herbal medicine formulator and founder of herbal products company.

Through it all, it is bringing the teachings of plant medicine to people that has been most fulfilling, whether it’s teaching at herbal conferences or teaching online. There is nothing I enjoy more than nurturing the human/plant connection. I’m honored to be able to share my knowledge with students across the globe with my online herbal courses selling in over 150 countries. I’m especially honored to be sharing these teachings with you.
