Herb Apprenticeship

This page details my herbal apprenticeship at Springfield Sanctuary starting in 2014.  I have chosen 20 herbs to work with during 2014 including my herbal ally – elder, which has its own section.

The herbs I have selected are:

  1. Elder Sambuscus nigra (herbal ally)
  2. Lavender Lavendula angustifolia
  3. Mugwort Artemisia vulgaris
  4. Rosemary Rosmarinus officinalis
  5. Sage Salvia (several varieties)
  6. Mint Mentha (several varieties
  7. Thyme Thymus (several varieties)
  8. Parsley Petroselinum crispum
  9. Dandelion Taraxacum officinale
  10. Nettle Urtica dioica
  11. Catnip Nepeta cataria
  12. Borage Borago officinalis
  13. Lemon Balm Melissa officinalis
  14. Vervain Verbena officinalis
  15. Marshmallow Althaea officinalis
  16. Chamomile – German Matricaria chamomilla and Roman Chamaemelum nobile
  17. Angelica Angelica archangelica
  18. Wood Betony Stachys officinalis
  19. Cleavers Galium aparine
  20. Fennel Foeniculum vulgare

These have all been selected because I already grow them in my garden or they grow nearby and I look forward to getting to know them better.
