Praise for this course

Thanks again for the weekend. I really appreciated the feminist, decolonizing, and anti-poverty ethics at Wild Seed and your commitment to accessibility. I hope to return one day!

As a newcomer to herbal studies I found both Jasmyn and Kevin to be very knowledgeable, attentive, and easily approachable. The course outline was well organized and I loved the hands-on work and the outdoor walk. A whole new world was opened up to me.
