(Also known as Plant Profiles)

Our friends in the garden
Whether it’s a new friend or one you’ve known for a while, it’s always nice to revisit friends and give special attention to create a deeper more meaningful relationship.

What is it to develop a relationship with a plant?
Beyond the introduction of scientific names and common names, plants like people deserve some one-on-one time to really get to know them. You’ll learn attributes like appearance, taste, smell, touch, where it’s from, where it lives, what’s its character is like, energetics, medicinal benefits, and its history with humans.
These plant profiles are articulated both through a written, blog format as well as a short video class. They include the herbs that you will receive in your physically mailed package to support your hands-on learning.
