I have been writing so much this summer, which has been amazing. My family is working with me to create online courses in permaculture related to herbalism, sustainability, and regenerative practices. It has been wonderful to sit and write for hours at a time. I have almost 600 pages of content written in that we have created the content for the course modules, and then several workbooks to go along with them as well as a draft for a book!
have also been working to include pollinator plantings and sustainable garden information as a part of the Pollinator Steward Certification I have been working on for the past few months. It was wonderful to watch their 10 hour virtual training over the course of planting planning and planting season so that we could review what we are doing and incorporate more pollinator friendly elements in our acres. For that certification, we have been honing our pollinator gardens as well as organizing educational content, working on including more articles and information on growing pollinator plants, and working on educational materials that people can use to make their own gardens pollinator friendly. So many medicinal herbs that we all use are also native plants and pollinator plants, there is not any reason to not include as many pollinator species as possible in our plantings and add habitat, shelter, water, and other pollinator-friendly elements into our designs to support them. Supporting pollinators also increases our yields, reduces pest damage in many cases, and keeps our ecosystems healthier.
With that, I have been writing over on SubStack as a platform that I think is easier to use for folks and is more on demand. So, if you have not subscribed to my Substack, you can do so at:
I will be sharing more of our pollinator tips and sustainable gardening info this summer as we create more content and record our videos!
