We do not tolerate discrimination based on race, nationality, socio-economic background, age, physical ability, neurodiversity, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, veteran status, or any other class protected by law. We aim to foster an inclusive environment for everyone in our community through open communication, willingness to learn from and address our mistakes, and mutual respect. 

Decisions regarding admission to our herbal training programs are based on our assessment of (1) the applicant’s potential for success based on their past experience and their demonstrated commitment to deepening their knowledge and understanding of Western Herbalism; and (2) the alignment of the applicant’s interests with the mission, vision, and values of Berkeley Herbal Center.
