What people say about the Herbal Studies Course

Being with you opened my heart to the world of the wild herbs. You’ve helped me to open many new doors, just because you do what you do! I wish you lots of support on your path and look forward to see you again. 

I was impressed with your loving care for us and the plants – here a delicious herbal buffet, there a wonderful wild flower bouquet and a herb sachets for our senses … all very lovingly and beautifully arranged.

I loved your herbal training, I gained so much knowledge and I looked forward to every weekend seminar. It was a wonderful year! I now see the wild greens and the trees through different eyes. 

Last weekend was awesome again, just great. It’s fun to be with so many green witches – I’ll might be able to fly soon!

I’v got new (old) confidence in nature. How magical – that was just what I was looking for. That I have gotten such a positive result has much to do with you and your loving and respectful way. Thanks from the bottom of my heart!
