Today’s conversation is with herbalist Michele Marlow, who talks about the outlet of comfort and peace that her autistic son has found in nature. This has caused her to envision creating a sensory garden, not only for her son, but other families as well. Now that their family has land of their own, she’s that much closer to making the dream happen.

We hope you enjoy this interview episode!
