herbs in wooden bowl imageWelcome to the EverGreen Herb Garden and the EverGreen Wholistic Ministry. We provide an inspiring setting for the study of herbology, how take care of one another in a mindful, loving way and how to honor the healing plants of our Earth. Our integrative approach incorporates Western, Ayurvedic, and Chinese systems of herbal treatment. We are dedicated to educating people using holistic principles that honor the body, mind, and spirit. These principles empower the person with the informed awareness needed for making their own health care decisions.

At 2500 feet, our gardens reflect four seasons of beauty. The Winter garden is quiet and the trees are bare, most plants are dormant. But by February we start seeing the hundreds of bulbs that have been planted here making their way up, the violets begin to bloom and the camellias have buds and flowers opening. By May the gardens are in full swing and have fully awakened from their winter slumber to such glory. April, May and June are the most colorful. The smells of the flowers and trees are so healing! The late summer, August and September, is the hardest time for the plants with the dry weather and heat - but with mulching and watering the gardens maintain their late summer loveliness.

As we enter our 34th year here at EverGreen, we are grateful for the family, friends and the many students who continue to support the teachings of the healing plant medicine and their message of how we are all interconnected to the Earth and the Life Force that surrounds us. In these changing times it seems imperative to strengthen our Vital Force with right lifestyles, adequate sleep, nourishing foods and tonic herbs, prayer and gratitude so we can live fully and be creative in life.

We will be giving High Sierra Herb Walks again this year to help people identify the local medicinal plants available in the High County. These walks are very popular and are great fun to attend. Last summer we hiked about 4 miles along the north edge of Caples Lake off highway 88 at 7500' and found dozens of wonderful plants. We also hiked the Carson Pass trail which has a breathtaking view of Round Top which is 10,300' above sea level s well as other wonderful trails.

Our Partnership
Since 2015 Evergreen Herb Garden and Wholistic Ministry has joined in partnership with Soil Born Farm in Rancho Cordova, CA. Together, WE are working to enhance peoples' live with organic foods, herbs and a holistic philosophy for living. The herbal programs take place exclusively at Soil Born Farm where a beautiful class room and gardens help the students to be inspired in all aspects of their lives - body mind and spirit.
