Grow Your Own Health

Julia was recently involved in the ‘Grow Your Own Health’ project, sponsored by East Sussex County Council and Futurehealth Brighton.

The project involved handing out a ‘welcome’ packet of seeds to people as an invitation to grow something new this Spring. The aim was to encourage people to make a connection between their own individual wellbeing and nurture, and environmental health, and nature.

Herbal Harvests with a Future

Read my article about creating sustainable sources for medicinal plants.

” Conservation-minded herbalists are caught in the seemingly contradictory position of promoting the use of wild plants and advocating their simultaneous protection.”

About Julia

Julia is the mother of two home-birthed children. As a child, Julia spent her summers at her Grandmother’s house in Germany, in the town where the Grimm Brothers wrote.
This inspired Julia’s love of people and their stories and the healing journeys they find themselves on. Helping to make herbal teas and herbal medicine, Julia found that plants were a part of the tradition of healing and would help her grandmother make traditional potions for the family and animals.
Whilst traveling the world as a young women Julia came across various shamans and healers and saw people using plants successfully. Her lifelong love and passion towards women’s health and her whole family’s well-being has led Julia to use plants to nourish people of all ages.
“People come and go in life, but plants are always there and if you are connected to plants you are never alone”
