Incredibly well-rounded and informative

I am a complete beginner to herbalism and stumbled upon this podcast looking for somewhere to start exposing myself to the vast world of herbs and the practices of working with them. I have been binging this podcast everyday! Katja and Ryn are the perfect compliment to one another in temperament, knowledge, and approach. The material is informative, interesting, and so fun and soothing to listen to. I can’t get enough! They offer a huge number of resources and courses on their website too - I want to take their beginner herbalism course soon. Thanks for all you do!

Grateful for this work.

Informative & charming. I’m learning so much and loving every minute. I start an online herbalism apprenticeship next week, and I am so grateful to have found this podcast as an access point during a pivotal shift in my own personal practices. Thank you for this work and sharing your brainspace-heartwork with the public.
