“[Ginger] is an awesome teacher. She’s very laid back but yet also organized in the way she presents material. It’s easy to follow her and she is extremely knowledgeable. She’s very good at meeting each student at where they are, never impatient or condescending when people ask basic questions. She teaches from a very intuitive perspective and places much emphasis on getting to know plants vs memorizing data. I really like her style of teaching.” — Sandy, former Sacred Journey School student, Spring 2013, Dripping Springs, TX,
“Ginger is the most fun, ever.” –Jennie, former student, Austin TX
