Looking to learn about herbal medicines and wild foods in the Kootenays?
Are you open to also discovering the deeper wisdoms the plants share?
You’ve found what you’re looking for if…
You want to reduce your reliance on pharmaceuticals and mainstream medicine
You can’t wait to feel the empowerment that comes from using your homemade remedies to heal yourself and your family

My teaching style and philosophy:
Get your hands dirty
Learn by doing
Develop relationships with plants
Learn within supportive communities
Strengthen your connection with the land
Hi. I’m Garliq.
I’m very excited these days about the overlap between personal healing and our collective cultural repair. Once herbs have touched your life with healing, you see the need to bring it to more people.
I love sharing the incredible empowerment and life-changing connections that herbs offer to those who will listen to them.

The Kootenay School of Herbal Medicine is the herbal education arm of the Living Medicine Project. It’s the same website and you’ll get emails from both. It’s okay, it’s just me wearing different hats :)
