One response to “Healing with Native Plants Workshop & Wild Food Lunch”
Hi Jess, it’s me Stephanie, I saw your two upcoming workshops- topical herbal extracts part 3 & acorn celebration. Would you prefer dedicated, serious students to attend rather someone like me basically a spectator that dabbles. If there’s an opening I’d like to attend. Please let me know. I miss and love your magical wisdom.
