Welcome to Wholly Rooted School, a sanctuary where the ancient wisdom of herbalism and aromatherapy converges with modern permaculture principles and the goal of self-sufficiency. Our approach is rooted in the belief that nature holds the key to true healing, and by embracing its rhythms, we can restore balance to our bodies, minds, and the planet, while nurturing our self-sufficiency. The Essence of Regenerative Herbalism: Regenerative herbalism goes beyond conventional herbal medicine. It acknowledges the intricate web of life and aims to restore vitality to individuals and the ecosystems we inhabit. By working with plants in a regenerative way, we not only harness their healing properties but also contribute to the Earth's well-being. The Power of Permaculture: Permaculture forms the foundation of our approach, offering a design system that mirrors nature's patterns to create sustainable, resilient ecosystems. By incorporating permaculture principles, we help you recognize and apply these patterns in ways that bolster personal well-being and the environment. Embracing Self-Sufficiency: At Wholly Rooted, self-sufficiency isn't just a concept; it's a guiding philosophy. Through our programs, you'll learn the skills to live harmoniously with the land, cultivate your own food and medicine, and reduce your ecological footprint. Self-sufficiency empowers you to reclaim control over your wellness and your impact on the Earth.
This doesn't have to be all or nothing
Everyone can take steps towards plant and environmental conservation in our homes and land
Even small steps can make a big impact over time
Start small, and work your way up - grow a few pots of herbs you use most often, use reusable inhalers or glass containers, etc.
Awareness helps make change possible
Do the best you can, with what you have
Check out one supplier at a time, or review one product every month - start small and work your way up
Be the example for your children, clients, and community - enthusiasm spreads!
I love talking about using Permaculture Ethics and Principles in Herbalism and Aromatherapy, and teaching folks how they can make a difference whether they are herbal and aromatherapy consumers, producers, or practitioners. See topics I love to teach about.
