Mel's enthusiasm for plants is infectious. Her classes feel more like a fun gathering than a learning activity, keeping everyone engaged and not feeling like you are being overwhelmed with information, but absorbing it all at the same time. Phrases such as 'Calendula is my friendula' are forever etched in my brain. Her classes have definitely had a positive impact on the health of myself and my family. Things such as elderberry syrup and fire cider have become staples in my household that we make every sick season thanks to her classes. Mel is my favorite teacher and I am thankful for every lesson she has taught me.”

Mel is like a shiny radiant herbal fairy, and all I want to do is focus and absorb, and be a part of the hum- her energy is so big and amazing! Its so obvious her whole heart and soul is in it, and that she cares so deeply about sharing- a wise sage, that isn't boring! It’s fun to listen to her, and hear what's coming next.  I appreciate how she lightens the tone, and keeps it relaxed, fun, and full of info.  And really, I'm a seeker- I can't stop eating information, lol. I'm a how does it tick type, so knowing about immunity is blowing my mind.  I love it. Seriously,  this is amazing- I took the afternoon off, so I could dive in!!! YAY!!! 💚 SO grateful for Mel. Really.” 

The herbalists path Feedback from Anne

~ Anne VS~ Mother and Educator ~

"This class will open your eyes to the simple & practical steps you can take to heal your gut naturally using herbs. Many of these herbs are growing in your yard. I'm now trying to eat & plant new herbs in my garden & to plant a whole raised bed of edible flowers for tea making. Mel is great at teaching & at answering questions. I also had many good tips from my fellow classmates. It was well worth the time!"

It's Better For Our Planet

Learning to use plants as medicine helps you to rely less on harsh toxic drugs, and more on the plants that have been here for thousands of years, just waiting to be used, sustainably. Thus, keeping those chemicals out of our soils, water & food!
