“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.

Last year, for the first time in thirty years or so, I set up a new sugaring pan in a new forest. What I found most interesting about the process was really questioning each aspect of the set up in relation to what it is I’m looking for in making the syrup. I don’t do […]
I was working with that grand old master Mullein on this misty morning. It wasn’t hot and sunny enough to be harvesting any of the other twenty or so plants that I ‘needed’ to be harvesting, so I was a bit adrift, waiting to see what the weather was going to do, when the wise […]
Every year, at this time of year I feel we are aligned with the beginning and the end of time. For the Algonquin people in this area, the February moon is known as the Wolf moon. Everything is pared right down. The fat of the land, (which was lean last year) is all gone. Everyone […]
We’re just coming up on February and it’s been a long cold winter already. Since I finished the shell on the timber frame I’ve been inside a lot staring at the computer screen. It’s good in one way because it’s forcing me to finish a book on bioregional building, The Hundred Mile House (tentative title), […]
