Herbal Education Resource Centre was established 1987( Registration Number 2026) as an educational resource to assist the growing interest in herbalism and natural health. The Centre initially had extensive herbal gardens to train local students and those interested in the growing of herbal remedies, however the growing interest in further educational opportunities saw the development of affordable Certified correspondence courses in Natural Healthcare, Nutritional Healthcare and Traditional Herbalism Courses.
Today, the educational centre offers a wide range of correspondence courses, ranging from entry level for beginners students, right through to a Masters Degree in Traditional Herbalism.
