"Recommended! I took this course with Lynn over the past year and found it very inspiring! "Esther, Apprentice in Amsterdam
"I am engrossed in your Urbanherbology Apprentice site! Love it!!"Elodie, Apprentice in Badhoevendorp Netherlands
Inspiring!Apprentice in Weesp, The Netherlands. Wheel of the Year module - Midsummer.
"This week I've had the pleasure of joining the 1st workshop of the year, of Urban Herbology Apprenticeship. We had so much fun, spotted so many herbs and made wonderful infusions. I really recommend it! "Marisa, Apprentice in Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Thanks for confirming the plant. I had a feeling it was Hogweed. I’m sure I saw hemlock today though, it was as you described in the zoom meeting last week. I’m really enjoying the course, it’s so interesting. Spotting plants on my daily bike ride is fun. I see what you mean by identifying and knowing just a few plants really well.Louise, Apprentice in UK
"I am very much enjoying the course and am doing as time permits... I did manage to make dandelion honey/syrup which was fun, and tasty. I am on the lookout for both knotweed and garlic mustard and thank you for the recipe! I don't think I will ever look at dandelions the same again.Apprentice living in Toronto, Canada
highly recommended one year online course for those interested in herbal crafting, foraging, nature spirituality, herb gardening and wise wo(man) healing!Caro, Previous apprentice in Amsterdam
If you're wanting to learn more about wild plants and can't join Lynn's Amsterdam walks/classes in person, this is the next best thing!Ann, previous Apprentice in Amsterdam
"Now that I know how easy this is I will definitely use this method more to gather seeds. It feels much more connected, both to the plants and to the natural cycles. And as the importance of supporting native species has become more and more clear to me as well, in order to maintain a good equilibrium for the local insect population and general ecosystem, I think this is also a better method and helps us to connect more to the place where we live.Extract from an other apprentice's final summary about her journey through the Growing module.
I had no knowledge before about the botany of flowers so I learned a lot about this and how looking at these detailed aspects such as the amount of stamen or petals can help to identify the plant. The same goes for the different types of leaves and I have memorized at least some of the more ‘professional’ terminology on this subject. I find that this does help to be more clear on what it is I am seeing, to be able to name it. All in all I definitely have more tools and skill now to be able to identify plants.Extracts from another apprentice's final summary about her journey through the Foraging module.
"This module gave me new ideas and made me try new exciting things... ...This caused a great impact on me: strange how I never realised that this is the most natural, practical and economical practice! "Extracts from another apprentice's final summary about her journey through the Growing module.
