Testimonials

“I was able to replace all of my purchased herbs from big companies with native plant medicine. If you are on the fence about taking this course, you have to take it because April's soul and connection with the plants is unlike anything I have ever seen in anyone practicing herbal medicine and its been so freeing and it has given me so much confidence and love for these plants.”

Kristin Morrell, Registered Dietitian

“You will be able to find so many gifts, plants, after taking this course to nourish yourself and your family with wild food and medicine. ”

Jessica Cahoon, The Naked Flower

“I have learned so much from Botanical Medicine Movement and I am so grateful for all of the knowledge I gained. Though April’s help, I was able to bring the information I leaned and apply it to where I was living in Guatemala! I’m sad the course is over but I will continue to apply what I have gained from this course to my herbalism practice everyday. April is an amazing teacher and I encourage everyone who loves plants to take a course from her; her knowledge and love for our native land is beautiful.”
