"Laura Pasetta was wonderful! She taught my 7th grade History of Medicine class how to locate and identify medicinal plants right on our own school campus!. This class was about the Medieval worlds so she come dress in a Renaissance dress and brought materials that would have been used in this time period. Laura taught students how to make an herbal tea and what healing properties it has. My students really enjoyed listening to and seeing what Laura presented. She had so much information to share that had us all wanting to know more. I am Planning to have Laura return to help students make a medicinal salve that is safe for all students. I highly recommend Laura Pasetta for any presentation or class."

"I can’t thank Laura enough for the amazing cooking experience she provided us moms and daughters for NCL. Laura was so great to work with, was extremely organized and made this such a fun opportunity to share in. The food turned out outstanding and it was so nice to see our teenage daughters follow along and prepare such a delicious meal and
learn some great tips along the way."
Kimberly Harris - National Charity League Director
"The organic gardening class was and outstanding class for me because the teacher was totally prepared and showed a depth of knowledge and personal experience in the world of gardening and healthful living. She tailored her instruction to meet individual requests for information and offered helpful suggestions. Her friendly manner and positive energy made
for wonderfully enjoyable class meetings. I intend to join other classes in the future that Laura will be teaching!"

"Laura is a great Forest Bathing Guide! The entire experience is refreshing, renewing, and educational at the same time. I particularly appreciate her calm positive approach, and her gentle guidance in helping us to truly take the time to experience nature and be in the Now."
"If you are interested in learning about and being included in the process of Forest Bathing then I cannot think of a better teacher and guide than Laura. She brings her wealth of knowledge of both the spiritual walk and the natural environment to help newcomers come to an understanding and appreciation of mindfulness walking and forest bathing.
When you get the chance to take her class - do so. You will be richly rewarded!"
John and Kathy Dean - Forest Bathing
"Laura Pasetta and her Wild Rootz experiences provide a wonderful combination of outdoor fun, invaluable and practical learning, and likeminded comradery for food and nature enthusiasts. My wife and I have joined Laura on numerous invigorating hikes that have enriched our understanding of southern California’s diverse ecosystems and the bountiful plants that can make for some of the most delicious foods we have ever tasted. If you want a pleasurable and mind-stimulating time, consider joining a Wild Rootz class in nature’s most wonderful classroom."
