What a visual description of this herbal course! Thanks for giving us a vision of what our week would look like while becoming an herbalist. Also my favorite thing that I can't wait to start on is my space! I believe that once we can create space for- anything- we can achieve it- mentally and physically. With that said- I'm excited to share that space and knowledge with others. Thanks guys, ya'll are the sweetest.
