    Has anyone ever taken an herbalist course? I'm wondering if it'd be worth the time and money, or if I could find one that was legitimate.

    There are alot of really good ones around and I would start with a few $ $$ and bet a good book on herbal concoctions and talk to your county extension agent for identifying local herbs. Or a master Gardner and just spend time and money making stuff you use every day.

    My son is studying it online at Youtube. There are a few different ones he's been watching and they are free!
    I'll get the links and post them for you in a day or so. Very interesting stuff on there!

    New England Academy Of Herbalism Is one you can Purchase but there are a lot of free seminars online. If your wanting certification you'll have to "Pay The Man", if you want the knowledge you can get it for free!

    I saw an herbal group on Meet up but have never gone because stranger danger type attitude. But I also know some of the local herb shops- not the ones that @kellory mentioned but the normal ones have classes that are fairly cheap. IMO it is best to find a gardening group and they are the more knowledgeable. The shops that hold classes do not grow their own herbs and IMO learning from seed to usage is the best education.
