We will also infuse our market gardening content with team-building techniques and collaborative strategies such as best processes and practices, requirements management, risk management, knowledge management and operational systems.

We are not stuck, solely, on the tenets of historic market gardening. We also love the newest thought leadership associated with soil sciences and the more advanced regenerative agriculture farming concepts of Permaculture…

Each hand-colored herbal plant image is both graceful and historically relevant. We also include a separate file which describes the featured herb.

As a subscriber, you have the opportunity to purchase an herbal wall art as single canvas, or as a collections of canvases. Each herbal wall art image comes in two forms; either an historic-looking wood block print form from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, or in an alternative, more modern-looking, herbal image.

We will be starting with common and well-loved herbs such as Lavender, Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme. You will be our Herbal Community Insiders who get first shot at collecting herbal art for your walls as well as herbal art which will be offered in other product forms, going forward.

Background Story

Have ever wondered why you have an affinity to the world of herbal plants, herbalism practices, cultivation of plants and making of herbal products? Then, you may have what I call the "herbal itch"!

I want to take you through my herbal lifestyle journey and tell you how my love of herbal lore, my passion for cooking, crafting, gift-making, led me to a surprising end-goal.

Ultimately, I have ended up being a business transformation specialist in educating others (which we call “Sherpas”) in transforming farm, ranch and other agricultural best practices and processes.

My way of giving back is to help Business Leaders, Community Managers, Consultants, Educators, Mentors, Coaches, Benefactors and Patrons in revamping / reengineering farm / ranch businesses that need to transform, or perish!

My global team of Herbal, Farm, Ranch and Other Sherpa’s are helping to transform business in order to achieve outstanding outcomes. We are active and committed members of the following organizations, natural health professionals, partners, founders and sponsors:

  • American Association of Naturopathic Physicians

  • American Herbalists Guild

  • American Herbal Pharmacopoeia

  • American Herbal Products Association

  • Institute of Women’s Health and Integrative Medicine

  • Naturopathic Education and Research Consortium

  • United Plant Savers

  • And many other Partners, Founders, and Sponsors!

Thank You!

In summary, thank you for your consideration in joining us. We're excited with the cross-pollination and interchange, which takes place, daily, on our Substack channels. We hope that you’ll cross-pollinate, mingle and collaborate with us!

ENJOY, your herbal wellness journey… and get ready to look, feel and smell your very best!
