  3. I would love to be able to take this course to bring health and wellness to my family. I have been longing to become involved with Blazing Star for sometime now. I have a 13 month old and a 5 year old so this would be a greatly beneficial course for me to take. I did an internship this summer with my grandmother at our family business ‘The MacLeod Nursery’. I spent a lot of time in the family herb garden learning and harvesting the magical plants that I had admired as a child. I am eager to learn more especially in regards to the well being of my children and all children! We are located in Amherst, MA.

  4. I would love to learn these skills to better support the families in my community as well as my own! I think that this class would be helpful in my practice as a doula and mother. thanks for offering, marianne, greenfield

  5. Thank you for offering such a valuable class! As a mother, and aspiring midwife the class would add a valuable set of tools to my skillset. Over the years I’ve focused my studies on child development, but in mainstream academia there hasn’t been much for information on building a healthy foundation and treating initial symptoms naturally before running to the doctor for advice. Also, with a child in pre-school, boosting immunity for him and the rest of the family is of interest to me! We live in South Deerfield. Warmly, Esti

  6. I would love to learn more about how to use herbal remedies for my kids health. I have two girls and would love to have them learn to use herbs for health also. We live in Williamsburg, Ma. Thanks! Marie

  7. Wow, this class would be right up my alley! I am a lactation consultant and nutritionist who works specifically with women, infants and children. I have done a lot of self study into herbal medicine, but would really love to deepen my knowledge base. I live in Holyoke, MA.

  8. I have a 1 year old daughter and have been teaching myself the importance of relying on natural products, not just in medicine but, everywhere I can. I feel strongly that the earth has the best remedies with the least amount of side effects. This class sounds AMAZING and I would love to add it to my knowledge base. I know it would also help my career (I’m a massage therapist, specializing in pregnancy massage.)

  9. I am a new mother to Oliver 9 months. It would be great to learn herbal remedies geared for children. I am particularly interested in prevention as well as treatments. I am located in Holyoke.

  10. How lucky are we to have Blazing Star in our community?! As a mother of two girls under age 3, this would be an amazing class for me to take. I sure hope I win!!
    With much gratitude,

  11. I’ve heard amazing things about Blazing Star. We’ve recently begun the exciting adventure of cultivating a happy, healthy, and intuitive family. It would be great to enrich our knowledge base and to grow/utilize herbs more effectively along the way.

  13. Hello, I have been studying to become a lactation consultant (IBCLC) and feel this would be a great addition to my training. I also just had my first child and of course would be interested for personal knowledge as well. – if i were to attend the class I would need to be able to bring my baby as he is exclusively breastfeed.
    thank you,

  14. I have had a very rudimentary knowledge of medicinal herbs for a while, but now that I’m organic farming nearly full time, I feel I should be learning more about growing and using the herbs that can help keep my family healthy!
