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

Woven amongst practical lessons about gardening, supporting the soil microbiome, and the medicine of wild native plants, we were bathed in crucial and life altering teachings about our relationship to the Earth, each other, and ourselves. This was not just a workshop but a healing journey to reclaim my capacities to praise the beauty of life, honor the various griefs that come with having a heart that loves what must one day die, and discover what it means to walk with gentleness, power, and love. – Michael

The impact of the Sacred Gardener School on one’s life is hard to describe. It starts with a large amount of hands on learning and teachings that bring you closer to all the beings in our midst. Soon, the wisdom you have absorbed permeates throughout your life. The food we are served throughout the course is full of warmth, love and wild creative beauty. All I can say is that something draws me back over and over again so I can be reminded of what is important. Empty your cup and let the learning begin. -Olga


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.
