Shamanic & Sustainable Gardening Classes

Shamanic Gardening is a powerful gardening system designed by Melinda Joy that incorporates sustainability with ancient teachings of indigenous cultures, Chinese and Japanese design concepts, energetic balance methods, and psychological principles.

Shamanic Gardening explores the creation of a garden that heals self, as well as the earth. Working in harmony with the natural elements, including the wind, these gardens expand your intuition and offer a shamanically protective quality.

The gardens are rich in high-nutrition foods that are medicinal for all aspects of your life. These gardens save you money, offer cutting edge sustainable technology, enhance your health, your family and that of the planet. They can even spice up your love life with ancient aphrodisiacs used in various cultures throughout history, enhance your beauty routine, or simply become more beautiful, energetically balanced, and protective.
