Herbalism Apprenticeship


The southern extension of the Green Witch School of Herbalism Salem, MA dedicated to the understanding and use of herbs and natural energies as a way to heal the body, mind, and spirit while achieving optimal health and wellbeing. Current Headmistress is Teri Kalgren (owner of Artemisia Botanicals) and her assistant is Sheilagh Cruikshank with nearly 40 years of experience and training in herbs and their healing ways between them.

The journey into Gaia’s green garden will last nine months, usually March to November. It is a time to grow the seeds of interest and education that were planted before you entered your training. While it is an intensive course of study, we hope it will be just the beginning of a lifetime relationship with the plants and their gifts to us. Your instructor on the path will be Temperance, along with visiting divas and healers who will share their wisdom and expand your knowledge. We will watch the plants grow in the yard, street, and the countryside. We may even take a wonderful herbal adventure together.
