Join ArborVitae teachers and fellow herb students for an open house and introduction to the first foundational year and also the 2nd year of the professional program.  If you are curious for more information about ArborVitae's program this meeting is the time to have your questions answered. If you already have an herbal training background and wonder if  you qualify for the 2nd year, or what the additional training offers, this is also the meeting to come to. Applications are currently being accepted for both the 1st  and 2nd year programs. Come for a taste of herbs, and a taste of the year to come!

 

Available Spaces: Unlimited

Please Note!

Pre-registration is recommended! The pre-registered (and early bird) fee is lower and registrants will be notified of any workshop info.   Class handouts and any special information will be sent  to pre-registered students by email ahead of the class. (Please do check emails ahead of class for this reason.)  Also, we determine whether a class will go forward based on the number of people who have signed up.
The Early Bird discount  (10%) is only available up till 11:59 pm of the date listed- roughly 2 weeks before a class starts. The discounted price will be seen when one checks out.
Registered Professional Program students receive guaranteed registration as well as  additional  classes, meetings, personal support, handouts, class assignments, assessment  and  credit for the professional certificate. If you would like credit for the course, please contact ArborVitae and submit an application.

Refund Policy
For a refund or class credit, you need to contact us at least 7 days before the class starts, and we will issue a refund/ credit. We trust this policy seems fair, as we plan according to class size, buy class materials in advance and our teachers often travel distances to NYC to teach, and so it is difficult to deal with last minute cancellations. You can, however, transfer your registration to a friend who would like your spot if you you are unable to attend.

Cancellation Policy
If for whatever reason, ArborVitae needs to cancel a class, we will do our best to give you 24 hours notice and you will receive 100% refund of the cost of the class, or if you prefer a credit for the rescheduled class or future class.

Rain-date Policy
If an outside class has a rain-date and  you can not make the rain-date  (given that we use it because of weather), you will be offered a credit for the class of your choice.
