Comfrey is a powerful healing herb that sits among a fair amount of controversy amid FDA regulators, insurance companies, herbalists, and the herbal products industry.

We will use comfrey as a gateway to explore some not-so-glamorous yet crucial topics, like:

  • The role of regulation in the herbal products and herbalism industries

  • How to research medicinal uses of herbs

  • How to check your sources when learning about herbs

  • How to keep yourself safe amid the vast sea of information and “experts”

  • Why grassroots herbalism is so important

  • Why I can’t sell you comfrey products

     

Along the way, we’ll also learn about the healing powers of comfrey, and you’ll get to make a comfrey item of your choice to take home.

Join us for this subversive, empowering class.

This class is offered on a sliding-scale: $30-45
