Waiting List: The apprenticeship is currently closed to new members and will reopen at Imbolc (start of February 2020). To join the waiting list, please contact Lynn.
Urban Herbology Apprenticeship membership gives you access to all of the Urban Herbology course modules, support from Lynn and the UH community. Members can also sign up for walks and exclusive UH workshops. The course modules, forums and dates are all on this one website.
The 5 UH course modules are split in to progressive units of study. With over 80 units and more being created, there is plenty of material for you to work through! Each month of membership opens up access to more of the units of study, enabling you to progressively build your herbal knowledge and skills. The 5 modules are available to you from the start.
The Urban Herbology Apprenticeship teaches you how to identify, forage and use herbs in an informed and ethical way. Wherever you live, being part of the UH community encourages a sense of deep connection and respect for nature. The courses are run by Lynn Shore.

Do you live in a town or city, perhaps it is not your hometown or even not your homeland and do you yearn to feel connected to nature? Do you want to be able to skillfully forage, herb-craft, make your own remedies and feel more of a sense of place? Then join the team and let's work on building your skills together!
New units and material are being added all the time. We are currently adding podcasts, videos and worksheets to the units, to enhance the existing tried and tested content.
Accessible, Tried and Tested
The units, recipes and activities have been tried and tested by people with small and large kitchens, living in towns, cities and the countryside around the world. The course materials have been developed by Lynn Shore, from years of delivering workshops, walks and courses in the UK and Netherlands. It is delivered in uncomplicated English (some units are available in Dutch).
