“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.

By Steven Martyn I’ve come to have a good nose for sniffing out ‘the hidden goods’ of our past amongst the post-modern carnage that surrounds us. This gold was brushed aside, or covered up deliberately by twisting its appearance or meaning, hundreds or even thousands of years ago. It sits hidden in plain view collecting […]
Steven Martyn in front of a ‘stack-wall cob earthship’ speaking about the need to revive the sacred foundation of our culture through the practice of traditional skills. A short film by Steve Turliuk
By Steven Martyn Our whole lives we are guided away from the mystery and the magic. Driven away, like sheep from a gate leading to open pasture, driven back down the narrow dark road towards the culling. This is not the way its always been, but for centuries now, since the so-called enlightenment, every fibre […]
