Jenza's Garden it the creative outlet for Jennifer Nino aka Jenza
A hands on learner Jennifer began her herbal apprenticeship with Charles Cochrane of the Silver Willow in Rehoboth MA in 2009. She went on to intern with Mary Blue of Farmacy Herbs in Providence RI. She continues to learn and enthusiastically brings her passion for herbs and learning to her teaching.
She has been teaching beginner herbal classes for several years now throughout Southern New England. See the Event Page for upcoming classes.
The garden became before the apprenticeship. It started with pots of common Kitchen Herbs and has morphed into an herbal teaching garden with over 75 different herbs.
When she needed a Besom and only could find ones made in China Jennifer found someone to teach her how to make her own. She took a class with Charlie Martel of Manchester NH. After that class she could not stop at just one broom.
After her first introduction to the labyrinth at her first New England Women's Herbal Conference Jennifer had to know more. Since learning to make her own after that first introduction Jennifer became a Veriditas Trained Labyrinth Facilitator in March of 2018.
