Escapes to nature dispense many mind, body and spirit benefits, literally, an escape to the pharmacy. From the uplifting, mood boosting high that comes from watching peonies burst into full bloom to the comforting embrace of a tree covered shade providing path, escapes to nature, green spaces and gardens should be a 'prescribed' recommendation for everyone, one I suggest to all of my clients.

In my Escape to the Farmacy posts I share my botanical inspirations and where available, the science behind the many easily acquired benefits gained from escapes to nature, plants, herbs, green and botanically inspired decor and activities like art. I have always been drawn to trails in the woods, and retreat there as often as possible. Living in Southwestern Ontario, the many deciduous trees drop their leaves in the fall, leaving the trails more open to the much sought after winter, life giving sunlight. When the weather is too uninviting to coax me outdoors, I retreat to the many botanically inspired art and décor projects that provide me with the embrace of nature that I so desperately desire.

Join me as I share my botanically driven ‘escapes to the farmacy’ for an enviable dispensing of body, mind and spirit benefits. Escaping to, immersing in, eating from and being inspired by nature brings so many body, mind and spirit benefits! Whether its a hike in the woods, preparing a meal using vegetables and herbs from your garden or surrounding your self with botanical inspired decorative accents in your home; you will be provided with a literal 'escape to the farmacy' experience that dispenses many physical, mental, emotional and spiritual benefits.

My farmacy garden plots and apothecary are a working, educational culmination of ideas, expertise, botanical inspired living, vegetable and medicinal plants, and healing therapies borrowed from many ‘God’s Farmacy’ advocates of the past. My inspiration comes from many nature advocates, gardeners, herbalists, artists and musicians like Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) who was a mystic, scholar, prophet, composer, moralist, herbalist and scientist, declared a saint and Doctor of the Church and master herbalist Maria Treben (1907-1991), author of Health through God's Pharmacy.  Hildegarde is credited with the Greening of Medieval Medicine through her 'viriditas' key concept, the healing power of green, encapsulating the divine force of nature.

You are invited to join me on this journey as I plan and implement my escapes to the farmacy to help educate and inspire people about the use of body, mind and spirit health promoting nature, plants and medicinal herbs; their many uses throughout history and the scientific research, where available, on their benefits.  Follow my quest, one step at a time, one day at a time, virtually, as I share my 'escape to the farmacy' body, mind and spirit botanical experiences.
