On September 11, 2017 we lost our home due to flooding from Hurricane Irma. On that same day I also lost my herbal teaching facility and apothecary from where I run the Black Creek Center for Herbal Studies.
Because of the kindness and support of friends and family we have been able to build a small home and resume our lives, finding our new normal. However, a year and four months later my teaching facility still sits as a gutted relic of my past endeavors.
This facility is where I did conduct all of my business, give classes and consultations and housed all of my herbs and apothecary supplies. The loss was immense and it has now left me without a viable source of income.
With a new year upon us I have decided its time to breath new life into my teaching facility but I need your help. As an herbalist and educator I have spent countless hours compiling information and teaching others about the benefits of medicinal plants. In order to raise money to rebuild the center I would like to offer you some of my E books that I have created over the years.
Within this bundle I am including information that will not only help you gain a better understanding of medicinal plants but also tend to acute conditions that might arise and improve your overall health.

Background: (in her own words)
My initial training included 4 years of study in Naturopathy which gave me a strong foundation in natural health, healing and nutrition. However, the program I initially pursued did not place much emphasis on the traditional use of herbs, so I began studying and gaining knowledge from herbalists such as Paul Bergner, David Winston, Phyllis Light, 7Song, Matthew Wood, jim mcdonald, Thomas Easley and so many others.
Much of the information in my classes derives not only from these teachings but also from the early teachings of Samuel Thompson, the Physiomedicalists and the Eclectics, which basically evolved from the various traditions of folk and natural healing.
I have had the opportunity to share my accumulated knowledge and gain a great deal more practical experience through teaching classes locally and at various events and venues to include the annual Florida Herbalists Conference.
Although my classes focus on the traditional use of herbs, I do include additional information which includes nutrition, healthy lifestyles and supporting the body's vital energy to encourage healing.
As someone who grows and harvests plants, my teachings also advocate, emphasize and encourage sustainable ecological practices that support the environment.
Cheers and Best Wishes,
