Herbs, herbalism, herbology, herb gardening ...

herbs signThe Travel-Quest herbal holidays section covers courses and tours with a very broad definition. This is not the place to find professional herbalism, herbology or herbal medicine courses leading to qualifications as as herbalist, but we do list short recreational courses and holidays aimed at people with a general interest in the subject, perhaps providing an introduction to herbs and their many and varied uses in medicine, beauty products and cosmetics, cooking with herbs and beyond. We also list holidays and courses covering herb gardening and the long history of the herb garden.
