Learning herbs and the path to wellness can seem overwhelming. There are so many plants, so many ways to use them, and so much conflicting health information; it is hard to know where to start. I designed Plant-Passionate Living to take the guess work out of it, with in-depth discussion of plants selected because they are safe and gentle for all to use, easy guides to cut through the nutrition hype and make changes that make a real difference.
This 20-webinar program will empower you to take charge of your health. You’ll learn easy and fun ways to incorporate plants into your daily life for greater health and happiness. A culmination of more than 25 years of working with plants, as an herbalist and ethnobotanist, this program combines earth-based traditions, science and intuition to make learning herbalism, nutrition, wild foods, and much more easy, fun and accessible. In the process, you will experience greater health and vitality and deepen your relationship with the natural world.
All the webinars are recorded and you have unlimited access to the materials, so you can learn at your own pace and according to your schedule. It’s the perfect starting point for your journey working with plants

My journey with plants:
The plants called me early and I have been learning from plants since I was fifteen. For the first ten years of this it was a personal hobby and an intellectual pursuit. I would read every book I could find on medicinal plants and kept detailed notes (a foreshadowing of my academic future!). It didn’t even occur to me at that time to explore actually using them. But for some reason I craved the knowledge. When I was in my mid-twenties and at a crossroads in my life, a pamphlet for an herb school mysteriously made its way to me in Ireland, where I was living at the time. I still have no idea how I got on their mailing list but something clicked and I decided that it was time to focus all my energy on this “hobby” of mine.
I will never forget my first day of studying herbalism. It was like coming home. I couldn’t believe it had taken me so long to get there. And I loved every single minute of the years that followed. I was completely hooked on plants. I was my healthiest and happiest self and loved being an herbalist.
I was born wandering and have always had a love of travel and learning from other cultures. While I loved being an herbalist there was really no looking back once I discovered ethnobotany – this is what I wanted to do. “Ethnobotany” is the study of people and plants and is a combination of biology and anthropology. While it is not limited to traditional use, a large portion of ethnobotany is working with indigenous and local communities around the word. This became my focus and my love for the next ten years of my life – graduate school and working internationally with indigenous communities. This work only deepened my love of plants and deepened my appreciation for their importance beyond physical health benefits. I began to see how integral they are to our very survival and what important and powerful reminders of our connection to the greater cycles of nature, of our role in nature. I began to realize that part of the reason plants make us happy and vibrant was not just because of their physical benefits but because they support and nourish our minds and spirits as well. They help to connect us to our roots.
Over the years, I have seen and felt what happens when we – no matter our culture and upbringing – are disconnected from these roots and from a more intimate relationship and knowledge of nature. And I’ve watched people light up and gain renewed vitality from remembering ways to use the simplest plant, such as dandelion. Plants have a lot to teach us, if we take the time to listen. They are wonderful allies in supporting a healthy and vibrant life. Plant-based wellness is more than just learning about fun ways to make medicine at home and how you can treat yourself of common ailments. It’s about remembering your place in a greater whole, about feeling more at ease and connected to the world around you. It’s about getting in touch with your true core.
I have been teaching throughout my journey with plants and love watching people brighten as if discovering a long lost friend and I love to see people feel their most vital and vibrant selves. Despite my endless passion for plants, I know that not everyone wants to dedicate their lives to learning about and from them. I created Plant-Passionate Living to share the joy of working with plants AND to create a program that is accessible to all. This is not a professional program where you will leave a clinical herbalist or ethnobotanist. This is a program to make you fall in love with plants and renew your connection to the natural world. It is a program to inspire you to notice the amazing food and medicine right outside your door and the creative and ways to use them every day. Join me!
