Welcome

This is the beginning of the Sovereignty Gardens journey.

Hello, and welcome to my blog!

I’m so glad you are here.

Sovereignty Gardens is on a mission to awaken the innate connection to plants that exists within us all. My connection with plants began at a young age and has never left. I believe that the plants around us are here to help us, to be used by us. We have evolved in conjunction with our local plant life. What does this mean for you?

My journey with plants began many years ago, and became even more important when I became a mother. What we eat, touch, and apply to our bodies has an impact on our overall health and well-being. What does this look like for you?

Our daily use of plants has an impact on the world around us. Food we eat is derived from plants. Medicines we use are derived from plants. How does your use of plants impact the world around you? The world not directly around you? Is your food trucked or flown into your local grocery store? Do you know the origins of the medicines you consume? What do these questions bring up for you?

Human life is interwoven with plant life, and all life on Earth. What does that feel like for you?

My goal with Sovereignty Gardens is to empower people to think about and use plants mindfully on a daily basis. Whether this means growing food, or harvesting local medicine plants, or planting a pollinator garden. We, as humans, have the innate power within ourselves to do these things, to live in collaboration and communication with our local flora and fauna.
