    Ep 24 - Quarantine Routines

    I've recently found myself reflecting on which habits and patterns have been the most helpful to me during these couple of months of quarantine, so I wanted to share a few of them with you today. I also give my suggestions for my favorite pandemic podcasts - who would have guessed that would be a whole genre??

From One Herbal Homestead to My Eager Ears

I struggle with loving the same podcasts my partner does being he’s practical, logical and a creature of habit, I am the opposite wild, unpredictable and creative flying by the seat of my pants each day. This podcast touches on my current personal journey diving into herbal schooling online b/c I moved to a community where in-person classes is nonexistent and even organic farming is scarce. We’re here on a mission for my partners P.T. doc. Program, but I am here as a supporter and lover. My path is only beginning, and in honor of myself I promised to continue my beloved and founded passion for plants. My story is similar to hers, and one day I would love to be telling a similar tail to aid others on their journey. As for now I LOVE the earthy, education I receive listening to this podcast while I dig my hands deep de-weeding, transplanting and package orders of the organic herb farm I have been rewarded to learn on and work on from this season to October. It’s a great background story to hear hers, and compare to the experience before me. Thank you for your wisdom plant sister, so glad to have found this beautiful podcast. I too am a chestnut student and look forward to exploring my journey further with your advice, suggestions, and more!
