Day to Day Herbalist is an herbal community that supports you as you bring the joy and power of herbs into your day to day life.
Building community is an important part of learning.
Our community meets regularly in a private online space, away from social media. Our online space is perfect for sharing lessons, recipes, expertise, research, resources, and herbal inspirations, without the distraction of ads and the hassle of trolls, that you find so often in social media groups.
In addition to weekly video lessons, we hold live private virtual events to explore different aspects of home herbalism as we learn together.
We learn and grow together for a season.
We take a deep dive... into what it means to develop a confident relationship with herbs so we can connect with nature, support our health, and enrich our lives.
Join us as we learn and grow together.
Home herbalists weave herbs into all aspects of our everyday lives. We have herbs growing and we use herbs in our cooking and throughout our homes, in addition to using herbs for health. Home herbalists create delicious herbal extracts and preparations that people love to take.
There is no certification or formal education needed to be a home herbalist.
It simply requires a desire to develop a meaningful and respectful relationship with the herbal world. And, of course, it helps to be supported by a vibrant herbal community :)
We're all in this together.
Even if you're a total beginner, don't worry.
We're all learning and growing as herbalists while we walk through the seasons.
We've compiled tons of resources, exercises, recipes, and hands-on projects to support us as we weave our relationship with herbs into every aspect of our lives.
Let's walk together through the season and explore what it means to bring the gentle power of herbs into our day to day lives 💚
As we walk through the season together, you'll meet a lot of plants 🌱 We'll play in the world of herbs, and we'll explore together. You'll have a chance to get to know a lot of different herbs, and you learn how to choose which ones belong in your family's apothecary.
This means that throught the course of the season, you'll fill your own apothecary with powerful plants that you know how to use. You'll learn which herbs are right for the situations that come up in your family. And, on top of that, you'll know just what to do with these plants to create delicious extracts that you and your family will love 💚
Being an herbalist is a lifelong journey.
I'm here to empower you with the tools and resources to make powerful and confident herbal choices that you feel great about.
You'll become very comfortable calling on your broad understanding of today's complex herbal landscape.
Making choices about herbs is something you'll be doing for the rest of your life. That's why you'll be given the tools and resources to continue learning on your own, for many years to come.
We build a solid foundation that allows you to make educated herbal choices based on a wide range of herbal teachings and resources. We cultivate a mindset that respects the cutting-edge understandings of science while maintaining a deep and healthy respect for time-honored herbal traditions.
Gone are the days when you stand alone in the herb aisle, confused and overwhelmed.
It's a whole new world when you're familiar with the herbs on the shelf.
You know what you're looking for and you know how to find it.
It's an amazing feeling to finally look with expertise at the rows of herb labels and confidently make your choice.
Day to Day Herbalist is built on a culture of respect and inclusion.
This is an actively anti-racist and actively inclusive space. Everyone of every race, gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation is welcome here. Our goal is to create a space where everyone feels safe, heard, and understood. Unkindness will not be tolerated.
Herbs are respected in cultures and communities all over the world. This creates fertile ground for intercultural and interpersonal exchange.
As a world family, we're being called to reevaluate our power structures and build something better. This is also true in the world of herbs. We're being called to look critically at the power structures in our own communities and to meet this challenge with intelligence, introspection, kindness, and respect.
It's more important than ever that we work to create safe, truly inclusive spaces for each other. Inside our herbal community, we have some powerful resources about why this kind of work is so crucial and how to bring this important work into our own lives and communities.
Let's cultivate our ability to create truly safe and inclusive space, so we can learn about herbs and grow together.
We have created a comfortable private online space to learn and grow together. Free from the distractions, ads, and the white noise of social media groups, we can focus on building connections and sharing resources and expertise.
Our community space is safe, secure, easy to navigate, and rich with resources and opportunities.
Our community is a place to share our wins and fails, and get support all along the way. We can share expertise, give feedback, and build connection.
Herbal community is a huge part of home herbalism. We're all in this together, and our community space gives us a place to meet up.
Intelligent and responsible research is a cornerstone of our herbal studies.
I've been gathering herbal resources for decades, and it's all housed and linked in our community resources.
During our season together, as part of our deepening relationship with home herbalism, we lean into the cycles of the seasons.
We're able to dance with the cadence of nature as we cultivate an awareness of the phases of the moon.
Seasonal herbal projects help us ground in the rhythm of the year as we expand our apothecary.
Our herb lessons are the backbone of our herbal studies. You get access to exclusive weekly lessons, videos, and resources to empower you as you bring herbs into your day to day life.
We explore the herbs of the season, make herbal extracts, assemble your herbal first aid kit, add tools to your apothecary, and so much more. It's all inside our private online community space.
Our exclusive online events allow us to come together as a community and take a deep dive.
Whether we're making fire cider, hosting a guest herbalist, or going on an herb walk, these events are a great opportunity to learn and grow together.
A couple of times a month, we have a group Q&A session. I'm available to answer any questions you have about our lessons or any of the resource materials. The Q&As are a great opportunity to get clarity on the basics and the seasonal projects, while giving you a chance to lean into your special interests.
I'm a lifelong nature child.
And one of my favorite things to do is helping people deepen their connection with nature.
I'm trained in permaculture design, and I'm a certified herbalist.
I have been working with herbs for almost 30 years. I've studied with some of the best herbalists out there, including David Hoffman, Susun Weed, Paul Bergner, Brigette Mars, Michael Moore, 7Song, and more.
I received my permaculture training at Prescott College, in Prescott, AZ, and I completed my herbal certification at The Rocky Mountain Center For Botanical Studies in Boulder, CO.
I live in the beautiful and ancient mountains of Western North Carolina, surrounded by family, friends, community, animals, wildlife, and the awe-inspiring splendor of the natural world.
