Joining the Urban Herbology Apprenticeship gives you access to all of the Urban Herbology course modules, support from Lynn and the UH community. Members can also sign up for free walks and exclusive UH workshops. The course modules, forums and dates are all on this one website. There are also weekly online apprenticeship gatherings to talk about anything that comes up for you.

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! As you complete the short tasks and move through the study, Lynn 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.

Start anytime, anywhere
There is no fixed commitment period because Lynn knows from experience that apprentices need to study when they are ready and have time to commit. Most people complete the course in 12-18 months but you can stop and start as suits you best.

There are opportunities to speak online or meet in Amsterdam every month. The more you put into the course, the more you will gain so do take advantage of this.

Learning material
New units and material are being added all the time. Lynn is 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).

How to Join the Course
Scroll down and choose between monthly or annual payment.

When payment is received, you will receive confirmation and access to the first units, workshops and walks. If you don't get instant email confirmation please email

Can I access everything on the course from the start? No. The idea is to progress gradually through attitude material at your own pace. You will begin with access to the first set of units. The next set will become available to you, as you show Lynn, by sharing simple tasks, that you are progressing and engaging with the content. So if you want to study fast, that's fine but you'll need to show Lynn how your study is progressing.

Payments - Automatic or Manual: You will notice that the payments are set to repeat (monthly or annually - but you don't need to pay each year :), please note that they can be stopped at anytime. If you prefer to pay manually, that is fine too. Just let Lynn know.
