Cedar Mountain Herb School
Cedar Mountain Herb School (CMHS) is based in Seattle, WA and has been serving herbal students for 30 years. This makes it one of the longest-running herbal schools in the Pacific Northwest. Cedar Mountain Herb School guides students to better health via hands-on integrated botanical programs centering on wild medicinal plants and their applications, science, grounding, sun, limiting EMF exposure, bio hacks, diet, stress management, and awesome times with fellow members of the CMHS tribe!
We also mentor advanced students who have completed at least a full year apprenticeship at CMHS and are building their own herb businesses.
"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 work in the body, and yourself than you ever thought possible. We go where they grow!" S. Tabert
Students of many experiential levels attend CMHS: from MDs, naturopaths, chiropractors, acupuncturists, nurses, physical therapists, nutritionists, massage practitioners and other health professionals, to students who wish to start an herb business, to those who want to practice on a friends-and-family level by providing healthy, nourishing herbs and remedies. All of our students share a common desire for valuable, practical herbal knowledge.
Motivated students participate in the Herbal Apprenticeship Programs and Community Workshops. CMHS director Suzanne Tabert seamlessly bridges herbalism with Western medicine and science. Training at CMHS allows herbalists to speak the evolving language of modern medicine, and helps medical doctors better equip themselves to answer their patients’ alternative medicine questions.
“I just wanted to express how grateful I am for your course, and I do plan to continue keeping my eye out for more ways to stay connected and keep learning with you! I can’t even begin to explain how much it meant to me to be outside this summer learning from your wonderful wealth of knowledge and skill. It brought so much healing and grace into my life to be able to connect with nature in new and eye opening ways.” Matthias A.
