After working on a regular basis at the From The Forest Studio, Apprentices reach a level of competence where they develop their own offerings. These medicinal plants and products are harvested with respect for the plants and their sustainability. All items offered by the Apprentices are endorsed by From The Forest.
Becky has enjoyed the outdoors and gardening her whole life. She first came to a class on Salvaging Plants From Ravaged Regions at From The Forest 4 years ago and has been hooked ever since. Darcy Williamson has been a great source of knowledge and inspiration in Becky's pursuit of knowledge which has led her to pursue classes from the Northwest Herbal Conference each year and take classes from many Herbalists and Naturalists including Michael Moore, Hobbs, Tierre, Richo Cech, Sharon Twilinger, Rosemary Gladstar and many others. She is an avid hiker/gatherer and grows many medicinal plants at her home with her husband and grandchildren.

Achillea millefolium. Becky, owner of Leave It To Us, is a very fastidious harvester. Opening one of her bags of Yarrow Flowers is a delight! She has the natural knack of capturing the blossoms during their most fragrant moment and drying them without loosing their delicate scent or color. This bag of blossoms will make approximately 70 cups of tea.
