Green Witch Gardening 101
Thursday, May 16, 2019
7:00pm – 9:00pm
This class is for beginners and experienced gardeners who would like to shift their gardening practices to a more Earth centered approach. Whether you have acreage or just a few pots on your balcony there will be meaningful information for you. We will discuss choosing plants for our ecosystem with place, ancestry and magic in mind. Michelle will lead a guided meditation as an introduction to communicating with your plants. We’ll talk about how both weeds and bugs can add to to magic of your garden and why trying to control what lives and dies within your garden is often a losing battle. Michelle will share why she believes that gardening should be undertaken in service to Mother Earth and what that means as you break ground and start digging.
Each pre-registered student will leave class with a few magical herbs.
Michelle VanderHouwen is the owner of Oak and Hawthorn and provides the plant babies for Ritualcravt’s annual plant sale. Throughout all her years, she has studied art as a window into Spirit and the psyche, and Nature has been her church. Michelle believes that our hands are magnificent communicators. When we let them dig, sculpt, draw, scrape, tie and sew, we are sending messages to and from Heart Center. Our hands, full of sensation but devoid of reasoning, can create pure, honest prayer. In Michelle’s classes she teaches, with a variety of tools, different ways of accessing Spirit using our hands and hearts. Her goal is to help us all access the knowing we had at birth. Michelle is deeply knowledgeable about the spiritual wisdom of nature, studied Shamanic Herbalism with Darcey Blue, and walks with the soul of a Witch.
