So many potions bubbling, seeds being planted, and here in warm Arizona even sprouts beginning to push their way through the deep rich soil. I’m trying hard to remind myself to take rests and ease into these winter months. It’s been fun to work with my hands again as we prepare the garden for spring, restock supplies, and dust off bottles for medicine making. I’m finally getting back into the swing of things and have many savory stories to begin telling here again soon. In the meantime I wanted to share a little preview of the thing that has stolen my nights away these last few weeks.
From the very beginning of my herbal studies, it has been a dream of mine to offer a simple and fun Herbaceous virtual adventure camp for grown-ups. Not so much a class for folks interested in setting up shop as healers or clinical herbalists, though I’m sure you’d find camp fun too. But this is for the herbmama in all of us who care for others, their own children, friends and family while doing their life too. A place for artists, dreamers, mothers, sisters, writers, musicians, bankers, anyone who wants a dash of herb remedy in the home, without feeling like they have to become the town doctor. A safe place where you can meet your wildself a bit by getting to know the plants closest to you. A place to finally get around to making those healing remedies you keep bookmarking, but with support of an enthusiastic guide and eager herbmama community. A place where you can also engage your heart and open your senses as you meet the herbs from your childself once again and find old friends. There are still things to be written and prepared, but the plants and I have found our sweet spot with each other and are almost ready to set up camp. We’d love for you to come along. Click on the calendula and step into the garden for more details.
