Growing your own Medicines is returning to our roots. In this way we also receive healing on our journey. The rooted intention is deepened connection to the Earth, your Ancestors & Self. Tending to the Plants in this way brings many Teachings for us to receive, as well as healing & harmony rippling out to all our Relations as we remember. Honouring our responsibilities to the Land.

This offering is shared through my lens as a mixed White + Native Yakama, Irish & Eastern European person. Much of what I share has been gifted through experience & directly from the Plants, Dreamtime, and tending to them over the years as well as Naturopathic Doctor training, human Teachers & gardening with my parents, and Grandparents.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
Grow Your Own Medicine is self paced! We begin planting seeds between now & the end of April with the waxing Moon. The first lesson of Grow Your Own Medicine is up immediately for you to read. Seed bundles will be mailed out for all who enrol before they run out! (I'll announce that here if they are out). You can start your seeds whenever you receive them! I love to plant these seeds during the waxing Moon, between March 28th-April 5th or April 25th-May 4th. Depending on your growing zone you may choose to start them earlier such as the first week of April! Lesson 2 on starting your seeds will be out on April 1st. This allows some time to read through the first Lesson & gather materials to set up space for starting your seedlings. You will have access to the course indefinitely, and can come back to the material year after year for guidance & support as you and your Plants grow! {Lifetime = As long as this domain is active. You can absolutely download the materials & print them for ease of use as well!}
How long do I have access to the course?
Lifetime access!! After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices. {Lifetime = as long as Teachable is up :}

Do you offer Scholarships?
There are some Full & Partial Scholarship spaces available for *Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous & racialized folks* with financial constraints. Email [email protected] to be added to the list with the email subject "GYOM Scholarship" as well as full or partial {very important step kin, this helps make sure I don't miss your submission}. Applicants will be chosen at random. Scholarship application closes on March 31st, 2023 & will be announced by April 5th or sooner. {Please be patient as it is just me reading through each email & getting back to people}
Is this suitable for where I live??
Likely, yes!! But feel free to send me an email if you are unsure. Most of these Plant kin are adaptable to different garden zones & climates. There can be modifications made depending where you live. We typically start our seeds indoors even when it's still snowy & cold outside! This gives them time to grow a bit before we transplant them outside. I also share direct sowing techniques if you don't want to start them indoors :) If you are in a hot desert climate you may need to adjust their timing and Plant during the cooler season & in pots to ensure adequate Water.
