Current Students Share About the Course:
"Steph and Jenny have woven together a deeply moving and engaging journey around our relationship with the land and our Mother Nature. They have done so through meeting plant friends, making medicine, engaging in ritual and gardening/foraging, all within the context of the Wheel of the Year and via tangible learning and intuition, ancient tradition and new practice, modern science and enduring arts, deep reverence and madcap humor! As someone with a bit of experience in certain areas they cover, I was not sure if their course was for me but I decided to take it because my gardening skills needed refining and my witchy soul could not resist the pull of the spirit-based practices. Well, I quickly came to realize there is something for anyone open to what is offered here, no matter where we may find ourselves in our own journeys with the land and nature... and ourSelves. Jenny and Steph's knowledge, skill, intuition, humanity, generosity, vision and contagious heartwarming friendship have brought together something truly unique and special in this course and I am so happy and honored to have entered into this spirit/nature dance with them. Thank you, Steph and Jenny." - C.V.
"This course has gotten me through the COVID pandemic! Every 6 weeks I have new content to look forward to and learn from. I love how the course is structured according to the solar calendar. I am able to apply what I learn by going outside and looking for plants, or growing them myself, and then creating seasonal medicine. I have learned so much! I really appreciate the decolonization framework and focus on land acknowledgment and visibility of Indigenous knowledge in the course that is not exploitative. Thank you to Jenny and Steph for sharing your extensive plant wisdom and love with us!" - Agnes P.
"This course is a joy. Learning practical skills and traditions in using herbs through the year for health, vitality and well being is such a gift, especially from Steph and Jenny, who have such a depth of knowledge and great chemistry as a teaching duo."
"I'm really enjoying this class and learning so much about different plant friends and how to use them. I've been somewhat tuned into the Wheel of the Year for a few years since I'm a gardener (slash aspiring witch), and it's so nice to learn more about the traditions at each time of year and also have ideas for things to make during that time. I recommend the class to people often!" - Kate W.
"This course is such a beautiful way to observe and appreciate our movement through the yearly cycle. I love the way Steph & Jenny marry ritual and spirituality - with practical plant medicine and growing techniques. This course feels immersive and well balanced. And, I'm thrilled to have these resources to return to again and again." - Samantha
"I love this course! Now I feel much more confident in identifying and using wild plants, aka 'weeds'. And before, I would read about tinctures and liniments and all kind of 'complex apothecary words', and I would go: yeah yeah that's something for serious, full on practitioners. Steph and Jen explain this in such an accessible way that now, kid you not, even I can do this! And, of course, learning techniques to sow, grow, and harvest in a way that respects and honours nature. With just the right amount of spirituality. Also, it made me realise how many medicinal/useful plants are growing in both the States and in Europe. You'll have so much fun with this course, I can totally recommend it." - A. from the Netherlands
"You work beautifully together to bring the spirt of nature into all you do. You have totally enriched my life and deepened my love and knowledge of nature. I did not know that this would be possible from an online class! Thank you both for your amazing work!"
"A very well-rounded, extremely thoughtful program in easy-to-learn format providing a wealth of information guiding you to deepen your relationship with nature and plant medicine. In tandem, this course serves as a field guide encouraging us all on how to support being more ethical stewards of the land in learning how to respectfully and sustainably enjoy the bountiful gifts of Mother Nature!" - K.
"This is by far the best investment in self-care I have made in a long time. It has been such an important way to feel inspired and connected this year. I get great, mind-revving ideas; enjoy the company of two smart, gentle and grounded women; and I have a sense of the world around and within me in a new and powerful way."
"I am so happy that I found this course! The lessons are very digestible in size and the written content is informative without being overwhelming. I really enjoy the range of topics covered each month from medical uses to growing tips and potential recipes. I would recommend this to anyone looking to get started with their herbal journey." -Madison S.
