Herbal consultations, distance learning, lomilomi bodywork, herbal training programs with Erin Vanhee
Trillium’s plant medicine immersions are designed to allow students to craft their herbal education in to their specific goals as herbalist. The beginning/intermediate student of wild plants and medicine making may choose to enroll in just the Saturday class in wild plants, leaving with a firm training in medicine making skills, plant identification, first aid, wild food and harvest protocols. The intermediate/advanced student with a background in wild crafting and medicine making may enroll in the Integrated Immersion broadening the foundations in herbalism to a more defined practice with confidence. Or, the student with a strong desire to complete a vigorous, comprehensive training in wild and cultivated plants, apothecary skills, diagnostics may combine the two with $100 off each course.
March-October $1150.00 One Saturday per month 9:30-5:00 with a 2 day field trip in May . Class size limited to 8 to maintain the integrity of training and harvest sites.
The wildcrafting immersion is a nine month one Saturday per month training program for the beginner/intermediate student of bio-regional plants. Students have the option of adding the Sunday class Integrated Plant Medicine Immersion for a more comprehensive training in herbal medicine or focus solely on wildcrafting and medicine making with the Saturday wildcraft immersion.
This class has a strong emphasis on herbal self care, practical application and wisdom. Our classroom is along the river, beside a waterfall, deep in the forest or along an open field. Simple, time honored medicine making practices coupled with using your sensory perceptions capture the true essence of wildcrafted botanicals.

The Integrated Plant Medicine Immersion integrates practice with purpose. The student of this program is assumed ready to take on the responsibility of sharing their knowledge and continuing the lineage of herbalist. Herbalist can take on many forms- as medicine mom, caregiver, community herbalist, medicine maker, farmer and practitioner. Each will gain valuable insight from this advanced practical herbal training. This program is immersed into the “doing” of herbal medicine. If you are looking for a constituent class, this is not it. (See book recommendations for constituent study.)
This Sunday program provides training in the practical application of plant medicines through hands on practice, mentorship, case studies, body awareness and diagnostics. Students with no previous wildcrafting or medicine making training will benefit by adding the Saturday Wildcraft Immersion to combine their training with harvest, identification and protocols.
