This article was originally published on my defunct website back in 2001. I was lucky to find a digital copy backup copy. This has not been updated, expanded or link-checked in a very long time. I am reposting this to see if there is any interest in continuing this line of inquiry and to pull it out of my drafts folder.
I believe in autodidactism – self-directed education. Although there are a number of courses available on the web for Herbalism, some free and some not, it is hard to judge the quality of the course without having a basic understanding of the subject matter. This is for those who might find my study outline useful in that it is presented without in-depth embellishment.
