Run, don't walk to take this series! I learned so much about coastside plants, cooking scrumptious meals, and creating my own healing remedies. It was a very self empowering experience and I met people that have remained friends over the years. Suzanne is a wonderful teacher!
Suzanne is a walking encyclopedia when it comes to her knowledge of plants and their benefits. By taking us on field trips she introduces us to flowers, trees, herbs and shrubs and explains their many magical and mystical powers. While hiking with my friends and family here on the coast, I feel empowered and inspired to pass on this knowledge about all the edible plants here. Overall my life has changed for the better! Her classes are invaluable. I highly recommend them. Ali Reneer

About me

As a child I loved helping my mother in the kitchen and eventually took over the job of preparing the family meals. As a teen I developed a great interest in health. That and many years of cooking professionally have given me a foundation for the classes I offer with a focus on food as medicine.

During high school I worked at a local plant nursery for several years and gained an immense amount of plant knowledge that I use today in my garden design business.

On graduating high school in 1976 I was gifted two books, one on Shiatsu, the other, on herbs, Jeanne Rose’s Herbs and Things. Fascinated, I read for hours of this exciting new world of concoctions and remedies and spent days experimenting.

In 1980 I enrolled in massage school. Included was a course in herbal studies with Dr. Michael Tierra, one of the forerunners of the North American Natural Health movement. During that time I also met Rosemary Gladstar, founder of the California School of Herbal Studies with whom I have studied extensively. Rosemary and Michael extended my fascination with the use of herbs in cooking as well as in medicine. I eventually married the two practices in founding Woodsorrel Handmade Herbal Body and Bath Products.

In 1983 I received my certification in Shiatsu therapy and through the years have included my herbal knowledge as an offering to my massage clients.

In 1985 I began teaching various herbal workshops and over time developed an 8-month course, “Herbal Ways for Women,” designed to give the student a sound understanding of the subject with a focus on practical applications featuring a hands-on approach. Even though my love for travel and herbal lore has taken me to lands from simple to exotic, I happily reside in a lovely seaside town resplendent in wild edibles and medicinal plants. This special slice of heaven is where I lead herb walks on the identification and practical uses of the bounty at my fingertips. An avid gardener, I enjoy tending my cottage garden, used both for pleasure and as my outdoor classroom where I conduct a variety of herbal classes and workshops.
