“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.”
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.

As we step through the gate that is the fall equinox (sept 21) it seems here at the farm this year, more than most years, everything is finishing up or starting anew all at once. I imagine this early turning is because of the very hot dry summer we just had. But nothing is just […]
In this discussion, I ask Steven to expound on his journey of becoming a “sacred gardener,” which has included years of deep intellectual and spiritual introspection and experimentation with agricultural production, gardening, and foraging — a journey that has led to him to a recognition of the roots of our dominant culture’s profound disconnection […]
