Testimonials for Moon of Hyldemoer Hands-On Herbal Course:

"I'm so happy to hear that you are offering another course.  I honestly wish I could take your class over and over again, and I'm so glad more people are getting the wonderful opportunity to learn from you.  I felt your class was so informative and made a subject that can be overwhelming, attainable.  I can't believe the amount I learned in such a short time. 

The hands-on learning was key for me." -Emily
