Steven snapped this photograph of me a couple months back while we were out collecting and identifying a few indigenous edible and medicinal plants. I thought it was fitting to share with some news I received:

Last fall we began having conversations with Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine about the possibility of a partnership with our work in Tanzania. Yesterday, I received news that I’ve been awarded a full scholarship! I’m incredibly grateful for this opportunity. Not only am I excited to learn more, but part of what I hope to do with the wisdom this program offers is to extend my study more specifically to this place, and to be able to share what I learn among the people whom we live and work. This program will be an invaluable resource for our work here.
