Hi, Class! I am so pleased to participate in this course. I have wanted this sort of content delivered on-line in a community setting for several years. My husband and I live a 20 minute flight from the nearest road (N of Anchorage, S of Denali). My science background is weak and I really want to improve my botanical knowledge to support my interest in foraging for food and making home remedies with local plants. Classes in Master Gardening , Permaculture, and Herbalism have taught me a great deal, but I want a firmer academic grounding. Thanks, Steffi!
