As a white woman, I am conscious of the history of oppression that has resulted in my layers of privilege. I recognize that my privilege has contributed to my access to education, ability to travel, my access to land and my ability to set up my life unconventionally, among many other things. I also recognize that the mainstream resurgence in herbalism has a history of being very exclusionary. It is improving, but there’s a lot of room for further improvement.
From this understanding, I offer scholarships for classes and reduced consultation rates for people whose culture or identity has been subject to oppression resulting in the denial of access to healthcare, education and modern herbalism. Specifically, this financial support is available for people who identify as LGBTQAI, POC, and/or people with a physical disability.
While preference is given to those with less privilege as outlined above, I also offer scholarships to folks who have a healthcare or wellness practice in which they offer support to others at an accessible rate. It’s important to me that people who offer their services accessibly have access to education.
If you are interested in a scholarship for a class or a reduced consultation rate, please email me with your name, preferred pronouns, contact info and a paragraph or two about yourself and why this class/consultation is important to you.
Please also reach out if you feel this scholarship is appropriate for you for another reason.
