4.22.2013 An Earth Day Conversation with Master Gardener and Herbologist, Jeannie Francis
Our guest is Holistic Practitioner – Master Herbalist, Reflexology Therapist, Reiki Master and Master Gardener, Jeannie Francis. Since we are celebrating Earth day week we talk about Jeannie's wonderful family history of farming the land here in America since the 1700's and how that has influenced her to be a holistic practitioner that emphasizes our relationship with mother earth and abundant health.
Today with all the controversies about harmful pesticides and artificially produced GMO crops, it is important to know the basics of what to look for when wanting to buy healthy food for your family. Jeannie helps us with that and talks with us on growing your own food, being connected to the goodness availlble from the earth and her perspective on earth day, and green, natural living.
And we talk about her knowledge when it comes to healthy habits for people and the planet when it comes to growing, canning, teaching a more natural approach.
Also, Jeannie Francis is an expert in herbal remedies. She offers a class called, “Family Herbaling Class.” It is a one year class that meets on the third Sunday of every month. In each class, Jeannie explores between five-to-seven herbal plants.
The class includes a wild harvest, instruction on how to preserve, and use over 70 plants. She teaches Folk, Native American, and Chinese remedies.
She also covers the benefits of fermented food, such as pickles, sauerkraut, yogurts, kiefers, and more.
For most of us, if you are willing to remove toxic, fake foods and drinks from your diet, and start eating and drinking clean, natural foods, your body will do the rest and you will be on the road to good health. And in turn we need to be that kind of responsible for Mother Earth to keep her healthy and clean. Earth day can be every day.
