About this trip

Mother, Midwife, Herbalist, Green Witch, Wise Woman –  Women have always been blessed with a strong and deep connection to the natural world and each other. Until not so long ago women were the main keepers and cultivators of food and plant medicine, carrying the seeds and secrets of healing herbs to care for their children, families, and communities. Women shared the deep connection of helping each other to give birth and to support the female body in all its wonder and complexity. This is the sisterhood between plants and women. 


Come and experience the Sisterhood of Plants at our herbal retreat at Raven Crest Farm and feel the ancient connection to our Earth roots. Reconnect with your plant allies and feel welcomed by all the medicines in our garden.  Share sacred time in the forest, by the creek, and around the fire with other women. Sing harvesting songs. Enjoy Goddess yoga and spiritual baths. Learn how to support your moon cycle with herbs. Make plant medicine for your emotional and physical well being. Meditate in the temple of your womb. Swim in our beautiful pond. Steam your yoni. Soak your feet in flower petals. Braid each others hair. Love your body. Honor each other. Make a plant mandala and bless the waters of the land.


This is going to be a powerful and healing gathering of women and plants under a new moon.

Plant Spirits in Your Garden was a treasured experience. The land, the plants, the (non-tick) insects, the birds, the people, the food, the accommodations, the wisdom, the music, the magic, was such a joy, and super inspiring. I learned a lot and opened new parts of myself, thanks to this nurturing environment. I've brought a lot of the teachings back to my own urban interior/exterior garden, and I hope to return to Ravencrest soon to soak up more information and love. THANK YOU!
