Welcome to the Cedar Mountain Herb School! Based in Washington State's beautiful Skagit Valley (Mount Vernon), just an hour and a half north of Seattle, CMHS is one of the longest-running herbal education schools in the Pacific Northwest.
For over 20 years, our mission has been to inspire and guide people to better health via medicinal plants. CMHS provides hands-on integrated botanical programs focusing on wild medicinal plants and their applications for healing and nourishment.
Students with a wide range of experiential levels attend CMHS: from naturopaths, MDs, acupuncturists, and nurses, to those who wish to start an herb business, and folks who want to keep it on a friends and family level by providing healthy, nourishing herbs and remedies. Our students share a desire for valuable, practical herbal knowledge.
Motivated students participate in the Herbal Apprenticeship Programs, one-day workshops, and Herbal Intensives. Our instructors teach from years of experience in their field of study. The 2014 season includes hands on hugelkultur and food forest workshops, homesteading skills, and more.
Get out into nature's classroom, get your hands dirty, meet the plants where they live, and start a relationship that will last a lifetime. You'll learn more about wild plants, their applications and yourself than you ever thought possible. We go where they grow! We're talking wildcrafting plants, baby!
