Student Feedback For 2017's Creating Your Home Apothecary Course:

Emily is a delightful teacher who holds a seemingly unending amount of knowledge and experience with plant medicine. She has a beautiful way of imparting her wisdom and sharing in the magic of medicine making. I would take her class over and over again!
Emily is so dynamic, kind, knowledgeable, and humble. She presents information beautifully and clearly, and with humor. I felt like a sponge in this class! My love and appreciation for the plant folk grew and deepened quite a bit over the last nine months, AND my counter space lessened quite a bit. It was a great balance between intellectual knowledge and new muscle memories.
This class was fabulous. Very informative and Emily is a great speaker whose passion is clearly conveyed. I have spent time this year trying to learn everything about plants that I can, coming from a total novice having never tried tea to a full-on herbal enthusiast with help from Emily’s guidance through this class, which has created a great foundation for me to build on.
Emily has an amazing way of teaching about plants like they are friends, and of telling the stories of how they heal and nourish the body. This makes it easy to learn, remember, and feel more connected to them.
Creating Your Home Apothecary is an amazing year of study that deepened my personal relationship with plant medicine and the potential to share with others. It is encouraging to know and be reminded that Mother Earth is always providing for us.
I highly recommend this class. It’s so wonderful for both beginners and experienced people. There is so much knowledge to be shared by Emily and nothing is ever too trivial. I so enjoyed this experience. It’s made me know my love and belief in herbal medicine on many levels.
