One-on-one Medicine Garden Mentorship Program
Are you beginning to grow a medicinal herb garden and are interested in deepening your connection to growing, harvesting, preparing and utilizing medicinal herbs that are specific to your health needs? Would you like a garden that has the potential to enhance and support your health, as well as the heath of the surrounding ecosystem?
The one-on-one Medicine Garden Mentorship Program meets you where you are at, and helps bring you into a more empowered and connected relationship to the medicines growing around you.
Through one-on-one sessions you will develop skills, confidence and intuition for growing and using medicinal herbs for maintaining good health, with a focus on nourishment, preventative actions, early responses to infections, herbal first-aid and more.
Your work with Nikola (medicinal herb farmer, permaculture designer & certified Community Herbalist) will support you through a process of establishing a medicine garden with clear intention. This program is all about expanding a relational awareness WITH the plants, while learning practical strategies and skills that can be used far into the future.
Mentorship Program Details:
Together we will assess your personal health (for you, your family, and close community), assess the land you are on, and from there create a medicine garden design (or expansion) that will best suit your needs while supporting and connecting to the needs of the surrounding ecosystem.
Working on an online platform, this mentorship is intended to intersperse our focused learning sessions with at-home exercises and rituals.
Mentorship Calls will Focus on:
- Herbs supports specific to your needs.
- Permaculture principals and how to apply them.
- Growing medicinal herbs with 'wild simulated' tending strategies.
- Respectful harvesting and effective processing in your space.
- Labelling, storage and building-out your herbal references.
- Home-scale remedy making: tea blends, tinctures, oxymals, syrups, lotions, creams and salves (based on herb and interest).
- Herbal seed saving (if there's time and interest).
*additional classes can be added.
These mentorships are designed to help facilitate the building of a trusting and respectful relationship between you, your body, and the herbs. As everyone has unique health/garden considerations and herbal backgrounds, the timing and structure of this mentorship will move and flow with flexibility.
