Wild Seed School of Herbal Studies

Founded in 2008 by Jasmyn Clift, Clinical Herbalist, the Wild Seed School of Herbal Studies weaves knowledge of traditional herbalism together with potent medicine-making to treat modern pathologies. Our diverse teaching staff have all been active in their respective fields for at least 13 years.
Our popular annual Intermediate Program offers those with some prior herbal training 140 classroom hours plus guided self-study. In this course we emphasize hands-on herbal medicine making, Materia Medica of over 100 plants, anatomy and physiology as applicable to herbal medicine, and ethnobotany.
We also offer a Case Study Program, drawing from the 25+ years of clinical observations of our teachers. Using harm-reduction and client-centered techniques we guide our students to approach herbal medicine with compassion and skill.
We teach ethical harvesting and plant identification of medicinals on wildcrafting excursions throughout British Columbia. We are blessed to live on beautiful diverse unceded Native land, full of powerful herbal allies.
We are planning a full-time 2 year course for those seeking a career in herbalism.
Or for those looking for more intensive classes we offer various weekend to week-long programs. Please check our website for current offerings.
We are based on beautiful Saltspring Island in British Columbia. No, it doesn't snow all year in this part of Canada; in fact, olives and grapes are grown here.
