Our Planting Love Apprenticeships are in progress. We are no longer accepting students for the 2015 year, but are accepting students for the 2016 Apprenticeship Year for Planting Love, Red Cedar Love and Community Herbalist Love Apprenticeships! For the 2017 year, we are working on a plan to offer partial apprenticeship scholarships for those in need, and an additional fourth program offering…so stay tuned!
Serendipity Plant Lore School of Ethnobotanical Studies Herbal and Wild Foods Apprenticeships interviews are happening NOW for the 2016 year! These 9 and 10 month programs cover wild foods foraging, ecosystem stewardship, survival skills, mushroom foraging, making herbal medicines, with programs moving into deeper levels of healing processes, working with various conditions, prevention, mid-wifery herbs and death-wifery herbs. Working within a very old folk tradition of my family, coupled with observation and science, we learn to weave our own healing tapestries, expanding them with our work with others. Learning and having hands on experiences along side me, a practicing Community Herbalist, we have experiences together with the healing processes and transitions of life. To be added to the Apprenticeship email list and/or to set up an interview, send an email to lemonlotus@gmail.com. If you feel inspired, please share with your families and communities. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

THANK YOU all who donated to Share Shelter AGAIN!!! Let’s go for a new donation round!!! We’ve been keeping this shelter love going for a few years, let’s light some more fires and clean our homes!

Other things we can collect are gently used items for kitchen, clothes, backpacks, hotel samples of hygiene supplies, books and magazines!
 
Garden Delights Bulk Organically Grown Herbs! Supporting local Herbalists and local Herbal Farms helps to keep money in our communities, provide fresher and stronger herbs than commercially available, and helps to keep local and bio-regional Herbalism alive!

Important Announcement: Calling out to all those who have long standing items at my house and orders that need to be picked up…please help us to keep our home organized and open for herbal healing! Between teaching and herbal care giving, nearly full time, we need to make space for this Spring’s activities! After awhile, I find many bits of money owed add up, and many items that do not belong to us are needing care and storage in our possession. Sometimes, this extra responsibility gets shifted to my son’s, as we have to keep track of orders and items, and bits of money floating in the community. Thank you for helping us with this clearing and catching up project!
Duck and Chicken Eggs! Duck Eggs from the Urban Snail Farm. Preorder now!  $6 a dozen, $3 a half dozen. Benjamin’s Organic Egg Shoppe may or may not have extra eggs this Azure pickup day, so we’ll set them out if we’ve got ’em!

Our Planting Love Apprenticeship starts in two weeks…and we have room for one more student…this is the last chance to get on the Apprenticeship boat this year! 1st year students learn to forage food, nutritional facts, how to make herbal medicines, and start working with themselves and their family while learning about botany and ecology! We have a lot of fun, send an email if you’re interested! 🙂

~MONTHLY (often weekly) SHARE SHELTER DONATION currently in progress! Donate here on Azure Day or on the doorstep, and I will collect and bring to the Share Orchards Shelter! Or donate to SHARE directly yourself! This month, Erin H. had a marvelous idea to share. She suggested that we each order an extra, quality whole foods item from Azure for the donation pile!!! This is great from another perspective…many of the food items donated to SHARE are often low quality processed foods. This is a way to share healthy abundance! 🙂 So let’s make our own Azure Challenge! To participate, add an extra item on your Azure order for SHARE donation!!! (Picture below of a donation last Azure Day)!

Share Orchards Donation Round-Up: Many of you have gathered things with me that we have swapped and donated down to the Share Orchards Inn, which is a 30 day Shelter for those people in need, especially families, children, and people with disabilities, to get back on their feet again. I feel very good about the work happening there, and many of us continue monthly to gather belongings to donate…but sometimes I forget to put the notice out. That said, got extra food, clothes, things in good condition you would like to offer to the group for barter and trades or for donation? Bring them down!!! Anything not taken at the end of pickup will get packed up and donated to Share Orchards Shelter directly by me!
