Growing your own medicines, and caring for the Plants is one of the most beautiful ways of deepening our relationship with the Land & Plants. In this offering, you will learn a lot of the practical details to growing your own herbs; but you'll also deepen you're relationship to Nature {which, includes yourself} and learn in depth Teachings about the Plants, Rituals, Intuitive Plant Medicine & how to make your own Medicines from what you grow. Growing your own Medicines is returning to our Traditional. 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.

This offering is shared through my lens as a mixed Yakama, Irish & Eastern European Indigenous 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 training & gardening with my Grandparents.

I am so excited to share this course with you all & grow with you this Season! This offering may be adapted to different growing zones, and to apartment container gardening as well.

We will be growing & receiving teachings, recipes & connecting with: Nettle, Marshmallow, Yarrow, Chamomile, Calendula, Mugwort, Lemon Balm, and Passionflower!
