Throughout our journey into the plant world,

we have learned much along the way.

 First by attending Southwest Institute of Healing Arts ( 2 year Western Herbalism program taught by well known southwest Herbalist, JoAnn Sanchez. Then by continuing our herbal education over the years through educational videos, web trainings, yearly herbal conferences, one on one trainings with elder Herbalists, herbal trips to other parts of the world and books. Our love of books & those written by our favorite Herbalists are one way we continue to educate ourselves & others. We have created this resource page in hopes to share what we’ve learn with you. All that are listed are either teachers we’ve had classes with over the years or we know are true to their teachings. This list will continuously be growing. Enjoy your herbal journey. We are happy to help you along the way.
