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.
“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.”

By Steven Martyn It’s a curious thing that two of the primary healing plants for Lyme disease, Japanese Knotweed and Teasel seem to move into areas just when Lyme does. The thing is, if our eyes are open we can see this pattern again and again. As the first waves of conquest swept through […]
Offered throughout The Sacred Gardener School is a deeper understanding of our plant relationships, and their medicine. We focus on learning to heal with plants, and how to ask for their help in the third session of the School.
