About the Presenter:  

Melissa Goltermann started her healing journey after 10 years of being on pain management due to a serious car accident. She found the medication was only masking her symptoms and she searched for ways to heal her body. Coming off the medication was not easy, and her body is still healing. Moringa was the first thing she used to help in her healing journey. Her mission is to educate others on how plants can be a part of a healthy healing diet. She offers free classes to children and adults at her not-for-profit food forest farm Momma G Farms, located in Eustis, Florida. She has been growing and using Moringa for over 10 years.
