I have been taking a class on Sundays from Forrest Green Farm that is localish to me (about an hour away). It is called Whole Living. We have had 2 of our 12 classes so far, and I have learned a TON of information. Yes, I began the class with a lot of knowledge but this class goes above and beyond. It was one of the best price-points in the area, and seriously she may want to up that cost due to the amount of information we are receiving!
Did you know that some seeds require fire to break through their germination inhibitors? No wonder I haven’t been able to get certain plants to grow! Some are light germinators (leave them on the top of the soil) some are dark germinators (cover with a pinch of dirt). Gone are the days of finger poking holes because they’re too deep and the seed just won’t survive the process.
I have also bitten the bullet and signed up for Rosemary Gladstar’s course: The Science and Art of Herbalism. I ❤ it! The information is presented in a digestible way, it is lengthy but there’s a LOT to cover. I’m currently reading through Lesson 3, but still have to write up the homework for Lesson 2. 😉
I’ve been taking online webinars through Hay House World Summit as well as the Food Revolution Summit. My first Webinar was with John Gallagher of Learning Herbs. He has a wealth of knowledge free to you, as well as typically bi-weekly webinars on a variety of topics.
I hope to break into podcasting at some point in the future. At this point, I’m spreading my wings as a fledgling herbalist and not only learning, but becoming more confident in my chosen trade. I look forward to sharing the journey with you!
My next Whole Living Class is next Sunday, and we’re slated to learn ferments, make more medicine, bone broth and shrubs (the herbal drink) I can’t wait!!!
