Aim to complete each green block (5 units) per two months. Some of the later units are available to you from the start but most will open up as you work through more units.
Details of how to earn the Foraging course certificate can be found in Foraging - 26 and there is a summary at the bottom of this page.

Herb Map
I have started creating a map of favourite foraging locations in Amsterdam and other useful locations. If you would like editing rights, please ask me. You will then be able to add your favourite locations also. The aim is not to plot everything but to help other people to know where they are likely to find some useful herbs.
