Some Changes at Living Earth!

As of January 1st Jill Kirchmann, our dear friend and our Student Liaison and Administrative Coordinator since the inception of the online program, will be leaving Living Earth. Jill has been an indispensable part of our team! We will miss her, as will our students. Jill moved to Norway in 2015 and has been working from there since that time. We send Jill lots of love and wish her all the best as her new life continues to unfold in Norway!

We would also like to welcome Lianna Vargas, who will be taking over Jill's role at Living Earth. Lianna is a clinical herbalist and currently a board member of the Ontario Herbalists Association (OHA) who did field work with Michael a few years ago and worked with Monika and Michael in the OHA before they retired from the board in 2015. Lianna has the diverse skill set necessary to take on this role. We look forward to working with her as a member of our team!
