What you will get from this course

During this course, I will share with you many important teachings as well as many of my own experiences with these delicious and nutritious plants.

There are so many unique wonderful flavors to explore.

In this course, we will cover far more than we could in a traditional half-day plant learning excursion. We will travel around together to all sorts of environments. We’ll also get to see the plants at different stages of growth and in different seasons. The best part, you can re-watch the lessons as many times as you like so you can really learn the plants and build your confidence. This will truly accelerate your learning. Join me as me venture out to meet the wild edibles.   

Your instructor, Elizabeth Heck has 25 years of experience in working with plant medicines. She is by far, Udemy’s most qualified herbal instructor. Rest assured, you’re in good hands. With an extensive teaching background, she knows how to guide you through your herbal learning journey with ease. Even better, she is there for you throughout the course to answer any of your questions. That’s incredible value!

Why is this course not Accredited?

Nearly every online course (unless it is a large university) that claims to be accredited, actually is not. These are simply fake accreditations from real-looking websites used as a marketing scam in order to sell more courses. Elizabeth, as with any experienced herbalist, teaches with ethics and integrity and absolutely will not be deceitful for marketing sake. Rather, her students are sincerely respected and honored. Therefore none of her courses claim to be accredited.
