1. Farming Management: Learn How To Work Your Own Farm

Have you always wanted to work your own farm, or have the land, but not the skills? This unique course in Farming and Management will provide you with the skills needed to achieve these tasks.

Due to a number of key factors, such as cost and suitable knowledge, the people who are most likely to become farmers are those people who have been raised on or have lived on a farm. But this is not always the case, and recently there have been increasing numbers of people who are leaving urban lifestyles for a farming life.

Hobby farmers often start with a small allotment, while maintaining their mainstream work or income until they are comfortable about making a living from their "hobby". Some progress to larger properties once they have established the skills, knowledge, and financial backing to enable them to farm profitably on a larger scale.

2. Master Herbalist Phytotherapy: Learn A Broad Spectrum Of Information On Herbal Medicine

This comprehensive master herbalist course delivers a broad spectrum of information on herbal medicine, aromatherapy and the use of flower essences.

Through our Phytotherapy course, you will discover the history of herbal medicine, how to cultivate and use herbs for health, cooking, nutrition and beauty, and how to conduct a consultation and prepare external remedies specific to client needs.

The course material includes details of nearly 900 herbs, their habitat, uses and actions, and any contraindications. This herbal medicine course draws from international knowledge and includes lessons on the three main traditions of healing (Chinese, Western, and Ayurvedic), as well as a full database of herbal medicine uses, properties and actions.

With this herbalism course, you will also gain a thorough understanding of the theory and uses of aromatherapy oils, flower essences, Bach remedies and tissue salts.

The legal aspects of operating a herbal medicine consultancy are also disclosed in this courseware, providing you with up-to-date information on running your own business. By completing this course you will be fully conversant with modern practices relating to the use of herbal and plant remedies.

3. Medicinal Herbs: Learn A Broad Spectrum Of Information On Herbal Medicine

For generations, families have relied on traditional herbal medicine, much of which is now recognized as scientifically correct. Too often in today's society we receive powerful drugs from our doctors for self-limiting ailments for which it may be more appropriate to call on herbal remedies and a balanced approach to living.

This course provides the necessary knowledge and information for making and using herbal remedies at home. However, professional advice should always be sought if symptoms persist.
