Welcome to Urban Medicine Garden–a mini-course that gives you your own private virtual urban garden tour. And welcome to access to herbs and to herbalism for everyone! Here at Wild Rose, we want to encourage you to Start Where You Are At.
And exactly where are you at?
Feeling daunted by where to start on your herbal path? Feel like it might only be for rural or back-to-the land earthy kinda folks?
Or that herbalism is something you can only do when your kids get older, or you get some land, or, or or (insert limiting belief here)?
Because the truth is that you can literally start wherever you are at. In whichever phase of life you are in, and physically & geographically speaking- anywhere!
There’s lots of opportunities to access herbalism and plant medicine in the city. There’s no need to wait until you acquire some land or move to the bush or go off-grid. And we are talking about plants that are easy to grow, low maintenance, not all that susceptible to pests, generally have low water requirements, and have a long relationship with people that goes back thousands and thousands of years.
Access to medicine plants and people who understand their medicine is badly needed in urban centres for reasons of sustainability, and to develop and maintain healthy, connected, and thriving communities.
Our cities also need access to herbs and cultivated and wild spaces–our cities need Herbalists.
