More About Herban Gardens

The enchanting beauty of herbs inspired me to leave behind the conventions of office life. I now grow (and inspire others to do the same) at Herban Gardens. I have completed aromatherapy and herbal certifications. Since there's always more to learn I continue to study these areas along with creativity focusing on fiber and paper arts. I assist others in seeking and nurturing their creative energy as a means of self-knowing and healing. Herbs are the perfect teaching tool with their sensory nature that awakens each of us to the beauty and wonder of the natural world.
