This offering is shared through my lens as a mixed 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. It is not just a 'gardening' course {and not a wide scoped permaculture course!} as I've had folks join just for the Plant Monographs & BONUS Lessons on Ancestral connections, ritual, and medicine making recipe book.

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! Seed bundles will be mailed out the first week of April. You can start your seeds whenever you receive them, or in alignment with the Lunar cycles! I love to plant these seeds during the waxing Moon. Depending on your growing zone you may choose to start them earlier or later. Lesson 2 on all things Seed starting 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! {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 :} This is your last opportunity to join, kin ~ as this is the last time I'm offering Grow Your Own Medicine 🌼

Do you offer Scholarships?
There are limited 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 30th, 2024 & will be announced by April 7th or sooner. {Please be patient as it is just me reading through each email & replying to each person}
Is this suitable for where I live??
Likely, yes!! Please end me an email if you are unsure {[email protected]}. Usually within zones 3-10. Most of these Plant kin are adaptable to different garden zones. 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 warmer year round climate, you may need to adjust their timing in planting. Most of these Plant kin do well in temperate zones.
