The Plant Medicine School





Welcome to the Plant Medicine School


We are passionate about helping people, whatever their level of training and experience, to deepen and widen their knowledge and skills of working with the medicine and healing of the plants and of nature. We hope you find this site useful. 


We offer comprehensive pathways that will empower you in discovering more about the plants, what they do and how we humans benefit from a closer relationship with them and our nature. Learn more about our approach with the links below. 


Collaboration is how we make ourselves economically accessible. We offer the best value at this time in Ireland and the UK while maintaining the highest standards of unique material and tuition.

Although each school is independent, we share the administration, online course material, and learning platform, and we follow the same curriculum, which reduces our costs considerably.

Check each school below for courses offered and their costs, thank you.
