"I really appreciate the respectful attitude, vast knowledge, and practical experience that Jennileen brings as a teacher. I loved making hands on medicine from the plants, and her perspective about how to think about making them. I learned so much and really loved learning with others."
-Rosa B.

"I like how holistic and immersive this class was. The emphasis of connection to the earth both through connecting with the plants and with ourselves and our heritages (and respecting others' cultures and their ties to land/herbs) feels really important when making medicine. Also the hands-on component was awesome and really made the art of making medicine more approachable."

-Kitti H.
