Student testimonials

I took a weekend class on Herbalism with Fuel the Fires and it was fantastic! The instructor, Philip Winter was very knowledgeable and helpful. He knows his stuff! Many of the Fuel the Fires Instructors were in attendance and it was great to meet them. I will be back for more classes.
