Evergreen Herb Garden and School of Integrative Herbology
Welcome 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 2,500 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.
