WHAT PAST STUDENTS ARE SAYING!!! 

~ "I have discovered that entering the world of herbalism is all about making connections, on so many levels.  Jessica created an awareness in me that I didn't even know I was missing! She is passionate about growing herbs and really knowing them, rather than just looking for someone else's recipe and purchasing dry plant matter from a plant you have never seen or experienced. I enjoyed being in the herb garden and having that as a resource - it encouraged me to do more in my own herb garden. I loved going on herb walks to get to know the valuable herbs that I have walked right by so many times not far from where I live. As with any experience, you get out of it as much as you are willing to put into it. For someone passionate about herbs and natural remedies and wellness, Jessica's apprenticeship offers a wonderful opportunity to be hands-on, while meeting others that share that interest." ~Sarah Cody, MS Ed

"I knew after taking my first class with Jessica that I wanted to learn more about herbalism and that I wanted to learn from her! This apprenticeship succeeded doing both.  From someone who was already growing herbs and making herbal remedies, what I got was a deeper, well-rounded understanding and love for herbs and herbalism!  Even more important are the valuable skills you will learn, not just growing, taking care of, knowing plants and their names/uses but that there are amazing plants that are right in front of our faces that can be used as food or medicine.  These are not only herbalist skills, but also survival. Less than a hundred years ago every home had an herbalist, this apprenticeship will ensure that heritage and tradition continues in your home!" ~Samadhi Summers B.A. Spanish CYT


Thank you again for your interest!

~"Omg!! This is an amazing class! I took this class last year and loved it! Jess is a great teacher. She makes the classes fun and easy to follow along. Every class takes you on a new journey as you learn what each herbs does for your body & health. Plus they are filled with fun, hands-on creations that you get to take home to your own family!! You gain the knowledge of growing and harvesting your own herb garden and how to create your own tea mixtures for different health issues, illnesses or problems your loved ones are experiencing….The learning goes far beyond the class and opens up a foundation for your own self-study in holistic health as you continue your herb studies far after the class is over. Take this class ----> the investment goes beyond the price you pay!! I promise, you will not regret it!!!!" ~Jessa Johnson, Reiki practitioner and massage therapist
