This book is an intersection where permaculture meets indigenous land use
and our schooling and rationality collide with the mythological reality of the Earth

The Sacred Gardener

Connection, deep listening, profound reverence, and guidance for understanding and respect of the bounty of plants. Taking the herbal healers course engaged all my senses to explore and share in the wisdom of our plant ancestors.

Steven’s relationship with the land and is not only one of stewardship and inspiration , it speaks to the what many people are missing in their relationships with life.. heartfelt connection. Each experience with the plants was considerate, wise and went far beyond identification. It was an opportunity to feel, engage and connect. I felt so honoured to be there.

My belly was full of delicious food, that was gathered in love, prepared in love – Megan left our bodies so yummily nourished.

I’m so grateful that the teachings of the Sacred Gardener are available as they truly bring back lost wisdom that we need. I reconnected with a part of me that that needed to be found. I am excited to continue studying.

– Mary


The Sacred Gardener School is for those inspired to move into a deeper level of being;
to live in a connected, sustainable and soulfully present way with the Earth.
The school will foster your growth over time, enabling you to embody the living skills
and ceremony needed to engage the larger spirit and ecology of the Earth,
so She may bless and redirect our collective and personal path.
