There are many ways to practice as an herbalist. You may strive to become a community herbalist –the one that people seek out when they have questions about how to use herbs in support of illness. Maybe you prefer to stay a little closer to home where you can put your herbal knowledge to good use by helping family and friends. You may choose to be a grower. Maybe your heart is leading you to open an herb shop, develop a natural product line, or become an herbal practitioner.
