About The Hedgewalker's Path

Why The Hedgewalker's Path?

This course brings together aspiring herbalists to celebrate the magic and science of herbalism through hands-on learning and shared experiences, so that we can nourish our bodies, minds, and spirits while connecting with like-minded individuals on our herbal journey. The Hedgewalker's Path is not one you walk alone, you walk with the guidance of your mentors, your fellow apprentices, and the wisdom of the plants. We're creating and celebrating a community of  medicine makers!
