"Suzanne, you have a gift. Your way with plants...is special. Your way of sharing the information is also special. I never once felt judged or left out or inadequate in your presence - or the presence of my classmates. You are kind, sensitive, funny, and exude love. I was truly honored to spend this time with you and to have you hold my hand through introductory herbalism (though it felt like more than just introductory)!" -Brenda
"I can hardly begin to express how much your classes have meant to me this year... They have brought an incredible amount of joy, gratitude, enthusiasm and life. I also appreciate the quiet and meaningful way you start each class with herbal smoke clearing, sitting quietly & tuning in, and poem. I like that there's no pressure to share things unless you feel-your non-intrusive sweet whimsical wise energy and understanding makes that very clear. And of course, I enjoy picking an herbal ally and going deep with her through a class, sharing a bit, and the witch switch."
"I love your “use what you have” philosophy – this was very freeing for me. I feel like I have learned/been inspired to really make a life with plants...I would definitely recommend this class to anyone who has an interest in plants and herbalism – and wants to learn more." -Renee
"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."
