The Perma Pixie and Willow Herb-nerd wish to bring Medicine to Homes, Plates and Backyards!
Our society has become disconnected from the ability to heal ourselves and contribute to our overall health by the ways of preventative, precautionary and nourishing Medicine. Two thirds of Pharmaceuticals are still derived from plant sources today. Become more self-reliant and resilient by taking back our ancient wisdom and bringing healing into your own hands.
'Medicinal Gardening' is a course like no other! Through her studies of Natropathy and Western Herbal Medicine 'The Perma Pixie' has found no course which delivers material based on a physical connection with the plants.
This course is designed to show participants what the plants that heal actually look like, in order to develop an intuitive approach to health and wellbeing combined with the theoretic and scientific.
What you will Learn:
- Growing Conditions of Individual Plants
- Plant Germination and Cultivation
- Basic Botany and Plant Identification
- Designing a Medicine Garden using Permaculture Principles
- Basic Medicine Making of Oils and Vinegars
The class will give participants a chance to see, feel, touch, taste and smell the plants to gain hands on experience that will continue once the class has finished.
Your Facilitators will be Taj Scicluna (The Perma Pixie) and Willow (Herb-Nerd), although not their in person, is a huge part of the course development and progression. These are two woman with a deep passion for plants and medicines, who wish to empower you to reclaim medicine and spark an appreciation and reverence for the healing power of plants!
By the end of the course you will understand how plants heal, and have your own take home medicines with handouts to continue your Herbal Journey!
