Medicine Gardener Online Course


Growing your own food and medicine is so empowering for you and your family! Most medicinal herbs origins are of wild plants that grew without any tending too, unlike many of our vegetable crops. Therefore, they have very individual growing needs. Some are quite easy to grow while others require a lot more attention and specific growing conditions as well as optimal harvest times.

In this course, you will learn how to design & build a medicinal herb garden using sustainable, regenerative gardening practices such as Permaculture & Biodynamics. There will be focus on cultivating healthy soils, that will in turn cultivate healthy plants and help maintain soil vitality.   You will learn the tools of the trade, how to choose which herbs you want to grow in your medicine garden by learning 14 medicinal & culinary herbs in-depth, pest & weed control, companion planting, optimal harvesting for each plant part and post-harvest storage.

This year, at Bear Roots, we have increased our growing space significantly. So I have decided to take my previous gardens and transform them into a teaching garden space. Each bed will be planted according to the different body systems. Throughout the course of the growing season, you will be able to follow along during the designing, planting, and growing phases of the project. I will document all aspects; the good, the bad and the ugly! This will provide a great ‘hands-on’ portion of the course since it can be challenging to learn some of these concepts through an online format.
