"Wow! I can't believe I'm at the end of this fantastic Masterclass. A year of learning and absorbing is over and I'm actually a bit disappointed it has come to an end! I'm already starting to re-watch every lesson to refresh what I've learned and to pick up any bits I may have missed. I'm so grateful, Caroline, to have had this opportunity to learn from you and benefit from your years of experience. The lessons have been informative, stretching and engaging with just the right mix of technical/scientific elements, practical applications and videos. The opportunity to study at a time to suit me has worked really well too and what's even better is that all the lessons are permanently available as an invaluable library. Throughout, I have been moved and inspired in equal measure. Thank you!" Julia C


"I have to tell you how impressed I am with your work and teaching. You are the Jane Goodall of Aromatic work in the world. Thank you, I have so much gratitude for this valuable information." Joan S

Caroline's interview with Rosie Irving  T.V producer (BBC Gardeners World), plant specialist, garden design
BBC Radio 4: Four ThoughtExtract from the Hay Festival: The zoopharmacognosy expert explains, “From the humble caterpillar to the mighty elephant, animals have an innate ability to forage for plant and mineral extracts in order to look after their own emotional and physical health. Domestic dogs are no different. Many canine behavioural problems are not rooted in past emotional trauma but in physical discomfort. You can enrich their lives by offering many of these naturally foraged extracts for self-selection.”
