So, it's been a while. For all of you plant folks out there I am sure you know how hard it is to sit down and write during the growing season. But summer is here and it is time to move on from Spring. I am so pleased to present to you my next post. It is a recap of the highlights from my photo series 'The meaning of Spring' with a bunch more medicinal information. Come and take an herb walk with me! I hope you enjoy.

A subject near and dear to my heart...learning to truly define the sustainability of the natural products industry. What does sustainability really mean? Check out my latest blog with the Herbal Academy of New England.

My next post on The Medicine Gardener...It is a bit of a somber subject, but its still cold outside here on the east coast and this is a subject that could use a little light and warmth...especially for us health care practitioners.

Here it is, my next post. I will say that there are many authors, herbalists and historians, who have touched on this subject material before. Also, my botanical buddies may not necessarily find this as interesting as my medical buddies, but I think it is important to note that botanical buddies and medical buddies have a lot to learn from one another.  Sectarianism in medicine is deeply rooted.  We have been fighting for centuries. This is by an large an essay for my studies into Physiomedicalism and hopefully a good excuse to mend some bridges.

Back in 2010, I fell in love with a very special place. At that time I packed up my life and moved to Ohio so that I could be closer to the source of all that is important to me. This is a wonderful video about United Plant Savers Goldenseal Botanical Sanctuary. I feel so fortunate to have done my part in keeping it safe...I definitely had a good cry watching this. A cry of pure love. https://vimeo.com/creationcanopy/goldensealsanctuary
