Ultra Rustic Garden Treillis

I have collected several Y-shaped branches during my Fall & Winter hikes, in the hope of making a wind catcher and giving branch weaving a try...Oh well! It looks likes these projects will have to wait a little longer.
My young grapevine has awakened from its Winter slumber and is busy growing new branches that need some support (the young tendrils won't have anything to latch on, on a barren wall) so I decided to improvise a garden trellis out of my deadwood branches. I little bit of jute twine magic (all of this done under my cat's supervision) and there you have a rustic wooden trellis to support the grapevine ;).

Announcing "Wild Plant Spirit Allies" Classes...

I'm happy to announce that I will be teaching a short series of classes at The Path, starting April 13th.
Details below. Feel free to contact me if you have any question.

To RSVP, please contact Marie at The Path:
800 Torrance Blvd, suite 102
Redondo Beach, CA 90277
(310) 540-3030


Through this series of classes you will learn about the truly magical uses of 5 plants in your everyday life. These plants can be found in your garden but you are more likely to encounter them on hiking trails throughout California. You’ll learn about each plant’s folklore and various uses (physical, emotional, nutritional, spiritual…) as well as how to connect with it on a deeper level. To complete our journey with these plants’ spirits, you will learn how to recognize them in the wild during a local herb walk.
