Testimonials:

“I saw your class over the weekend. In fact I was on staff for the Southeast Wise Women’s Herb Conference for 9 years, up until this year when I took this job and stepped away. I was tasked this weekend with evaluating the new teachers at the event and reporting back to Renee. In short, I LOVED your alewife class. I thought you were inspiring and wonderful. Super excited about what you offer and how you offer it. Wanting more, more, more.”
~ Lee Warren, Executive Director of Organic Growers School, Asheville, NC

I have so much respect and attraction to your gentle and enthusiastic teaching style. A lot of people are going to be made fortunate by having a chance to learn about herbal medicine from you.”
~ Darrell Martin, Herbalist, Blue Boy Herbs, MS

“Thank you again for awakening in me an excitement I never knew existed.”
~ Karen, Mississippi

“I really had some ‘aha’ moments, especially when you were talking about the philosophy and spirituality in permaculture. Another profound ‘aha’ was when you were talking about the importance of smell and taste in the consumption of an herb. It got me to thinking about all of the sensory experiences we bypass in life and how we are doing our bodies and souls a disservice in this way. I have always honored the living things around me but now look at plants in a deeper, more spiritual way. That was an unexpected surprise from the class. Thank you!”
~ Nancy, Mississippi

“Thanks to your plant walks, my kitchen table is full of jars of tinctures and oils and vinegars in the making — cleavers, daisy fleabane, geranium, plantain, mimosa bark, chickweed, yellow dock. Gas oven’s pilot light is dehydrating huge trays of primrose…. and I even had success treating my cat’s bloody urine condition with parsley infusion last week. Never would have tried that before, would have raced off to the vet.”
~ Susan, Alabama
