If you are planning to join the Crafty Herbalist Academy (“the Membership”) then you must read these terms and conditions in full prior to purchasing.

The Crafty Herbalist Academy is a membership platform for self-paced herbal medicine learning. The Membership is an ongoing commitment where you can get regular support and guidance.

The aim of The Crafty Herbalist Academy is to provide members with herbal teachings through a self-paced herbal medicine immersion course, regular live classes, and a community forum.


This membership is suitable for those who are over the age of 18.


There are three elements to the Membership:

  1. Self-paced herbal immersion course with monthly release of modules to ensure deep learning and avoid overwhelm (thirteen modules in total, one released every month)
  2. Regular online live classes (excluding UK school holidays such as July and August)
  3. A private community forum

Self-paced herbal immersion course

  • For best results you should work through the self-paced herbal medicine immersion course in your own time, following the monthly released modules. Failure to do so may limit your ability to learn. The content of all resources and training will be provided in English, translations are not available.
  • You will get the chance to ask questions inside the community forum.

Online live Classes

  • The online live classes will be led by Kristine De Block or a colleague of hers in the complementary health industry.
  • The online live classes will be recorded and edited within 7 working days, and then made available to members for viewing inside the Membership website.
  • During these online live classes, a variety of herbal medicine or health related topics will be discussed.
  • The information and guidance shared will be based on our experience and research before the classes.
  • The live sessions will be recorded and made available for members inside the Membership within 7 working days.
  • There will be no live classes during the school and summer holidays.

Private Community Forum

You will have access to a private Community Forum to support you during the Membership. The intention of the community forum is to provide community support and a network of individuals at a similar stage of Membership and who are facing similar challenges.

From time to time, Kristine De Block may post and offer support in the Community Forum but there is no guarantee that posts will be responded to immediately or that the forum will be monitored.

Please be advised that whilst we hope that you will be able to utilise the Community Forum, we make no guarantees as to the availability of the forum and/or the content within the forum at any time. Therefore, always ensure that you have back-up copies of any information shared within the group.


It is requested that at all times your behaviour towards others is polite and respectful. Should your behaviour be deemed offensive or inappropriate we reserve the right to remove you from the Membership with immediate effect.

Each person is responsible for their own behaviour, and we will not be held responsible for the behaviour or actions of any other Members.


The cost of the Membership is set at the time you subscribe and is inclusive of taxes. On subscription you will agree to annual or bi-annual payments via PayPal or Stripe which will be taken on regular intervals as per your specific membership (Monthly or Annual Membership)

The Membership is an ongoing subscription and payment will be taken on the same day monthly or annually.

Should we do this we will provide advance notice so that you can decide whether to consider your subscription. We shall never increase your membership fees without providing at least 28 days’ notice and without providing you with advance notification.


It is our aim that you will be completely happy with the Membership and the herbal medicine teachings. However, we appreciate that there may come a time when you wish to leave the Membership. If you wish to leave, please ensure you adhere to a 14 days’ notice period of your intent to cancel before the end of your current subscription.

  • If you fail to pay your Membership fees by the relevant due date;
  • If you commit a repudiatory breach of the Terms of this agreement;
  • As decided at our sole discretion from time to time.


It is the intention that the Membership will run continuously and that any training material and live classes will be provided as set out above. Should an unforeseen reason arise which cause modules or classes to be postponed they will be re-arranged as soon as possible.

Throughout the Membership we will be available via email using kristine@thecraftyherbalist.org.uk within 3 working days of receiving your message.
