"Accessible, foundational, practical ... Lise Wolff's Three Seasons Herb Class will introduce and equip any student to be a real herbalist." ~ John Hauser, Three Seasons Graduate


Three Seasons is a practical and fun series of 22 herb classes that actually follows the cycles of the seasons, as well the growth and development of common, accessible medicinal trees, shrubs and plants around you.

I have practiced herbalism full-time since 1996 and have gathered common and available plants that many traditionally perceived as weeds to stock my pharmacy. Seeing that these amazing plants were being ignored--and that folks even seemed afraid to gather and use them--motivated me to teach my Year Long Herb Program, 3 Seasons of Herbal Wisdom, in-person, to 26 groups of herb students.

Whether you’re already in clinical practice and want to grow your skills or are simply wishing for deeper (or any!) knowledge of plants to care for those near and dear to you, this program promises to meet you where you’re at and expand your knowledge and decision-making skills. This class series focuses on common and accessible plants growing in your backyard and pretty much anywhere you walk.

Join anytime! Pre-recorded classes allow students to work through content at their own pace. You will have plenty of access to me through live, monthly Q&A sessions. A community forum, in which I will also participate, provides a place to meet and talk to other 3 Seasons students of all levels. I do feel confident you will be entertained and engaged!

Students will receive LIFETIME ACCESS to the following:

  • A view of the world that leaves you feeling that it is full of abundance and that your friends surround you everywhere you go!

What's special about Three Seasons?


"Three Seasons" is the heart of my teaching work. I launched this online class to share everything I know from 28 years of practice - not just how I do it, but how you can get there yourself, without going through all the meandering I did.

This course will instill
confidence and encourage students to start using the plants that they are learning, or already know, regardless of how long they’ve been studying. We will also study the how of herbalism - how to:

  • Identify the plants we encounter
  • Learn directly from the plants around us (rather than only from books)
  • Decide which remedy is best
  • Pick the right dosage
  • Know if it's ever the wrong time to use herbs
  • Discern what we read - online or in books, and
  • Build herbs into our daily lives!

From nitty-gritty medicine making basics to big picture applications, students will learn through a series of pre-recorded classes that follow the changing seasons of the Herbalist's calendar year.

The lessons begin in early January, while the plants are still seemingly dormant, and continue until mid-November, when they once again go back to sleep. Classes come every 2-3 weeks, observing how plants change as they grow, learning the correct plant parts used for medicine making and appropriate harvesting timelines throughout each season.

Learn anywhere, anytime, at your own pace, rewatching as often as you like. Class segments are broken into 10-40 minute "bite size" pieces to more easily integrate into everyone's busy lives!

Think you can't learn to identify plants online?

Keep in mind this slideshow is from Class 11, halfway through the year. The students have been watching the growth of trees, shrubs and plants since January!

"...something I wish I had done as a young man."

I have devoted my adult life to the study & practice of professional health care. I have studied with quite a few herbalists and doctors who use herbal medicine. Lise Wolff is the finest herb teacher I have had. Taking Lise Wolff’s Three Seasons Herb Class is something I wish I had done as a young man before acquiring my nursing, naturopathic medicine and oriental medicine degrees because what Lise Wolff conveys in her herb course is accessible, foundational, and practical. Knowing the local plants’ distinct qualities, habitat, properties, and personalities as neighbors, medicines, and legends, Lise Wolff presents information in three dimensions to students. She introduces the possibility of reading a person’s condition and introducing the specific, appropriate local plant medicine to heal disease to novice lay people and health care professionals alike. Lise Wolff’s Three Seasons Herb Class will introduce and equip any student to be a real herbalist.

"'There is no greater service a man can render to his country than to introduce a useful plant into its culture." ~Thomas Jefferson

The same holds true for most any individual student who would take this introduction to herbal medicine."

John Hauser, RN, ND, OMD, LAc

"Three Seasons was the catalyst that helped me to identify and nurture ...my life's passion."

"Lise's Three Seasons Class was the catalyst that helped me to identify and nurture what has become my life's passion: helping others through herbal medicine. After taking several of Lise's one-time classes, I became intrigued with herbs, and decided to take the plunge, investing my time and money in her Three Seasons Class. Best. Investment. Ever.

The Three Seasons class I was part of included people with many levels of experience and knowledge. I was definitely one of the beginner-level students and wondered what I had gotten myself into! However, Lise is a master teacher — so good at explaining details, making sure everyone understands and feels included in the discussions and activities.

I have always been an avid gardener and soon began planting a wide variety of medicinal plants in my yard and gardens. Lise occasionally brings classes to my gardens, so I have had a continuing opportunity to listen in on her teaching. Every time, I learn something new or am reminded of information that had slipped from my memory. I am excited with the opportunity to have lifetime access to her material so I can continue to listen and learn — and re-learn — with the convenience of online access anytime and anywhere.

Finally, the long-term benefit that I most appreciate has been Lise's ongoing support whenever I have questions or a new discovery to share. Priceless.

"Profound respect and appreciation..."

"The Three Seasons of Herbal Wisdom was an experience so fulfilling, I left wanting more after every class. Lise offers in-depth and thorough lessons, ones that include her experience and skill, implementing space for curiosity and wonder. Teaching in a way that allows you to become personal with the plants, giving meaning and a deep understanding of their medicines, each lesson immersed you. She explains comprehensively the doctrine of signatures, tongue diagnosis, and pulse testing, making it easily applicable while allowing plenty of opportunities to practice the knowledge and skill. She offers herself as an indispensable resource, both in class and outside of it.

I completed my courses with Lise equipped with passion and love for our plant allies, confidence in my ability to work with plants, and a profound respect and appreciation for the woman who teaches their medicine."

Geri Boyd, Mother, Herbalist, PCA, Saint Paul, Minnesota

"Lise's class engages all learning styles..."

Lise's class engages all learning styles through listening to her lectures and taking notes, sensing, tasting and touching each plant in person or looking at them in detailed photos. She also includes many case histories of where a plant has helped a person, giving specific indications, or an overall personality profile of a person and a plant together, in addition to the research data of a plant or it’s actions. This helps engage both the right and left brain for those who either thrive in an analytical environment or for those who find a social experience the key for remembering information. Lise encourages you to think on your own and come up with your own answers to your own questions before providing you with her opinion. Lise is personable, but not an easy teacher. She inspires you to think on your own and put your knowledge into practice.
