A great introduction into the vast world of herbs from a very knowledgeable and fun teacher - I can't wait for my next class! Highly recommended!!
I was always interested in learning more about herbal healing properties and how to best apply them as a supplement into my everyday life and this class taught me just that. Jo Anne goes into a few of her main favorite herbs and is so knowledgeable on every single one of them. I came out of that class just wanting to learn more that I had to sign up for herbs 102 and foraging. She is truly passionate about her love for plants and herbs and allows you to really taste, touch, and understand these plants/herbs. Recommend 10/10.
This was a really great intro class. Really wonderful teacher and atmosphere. Thanks JoAnne. It was great to get a solid base to start to understand how to use herbs and make remedies. Thank you!
I had been thinking about taking the Herbs 101 class for a while. I had some general knowledge about herbs from my naturopath and functional medicine doctors, but wanted to start building some more general knowledge of my own. This class felt like the right place to start.
