When developing Ecoversity,
we asked ourselves to look through a particular lens.


This lens is one of ecological regeneration, diversity, radical inclusivity, and future-forward healing. This means we create a teaching space that fosters safety, courage, and collective liberation. We support all participants by regeneratively embracing edges of identity and social location. In this way, we nurture dialogue and education that is polycultural, not monocultural. 

This curriculum is built upon the knowledge of many peoples world-wide. From indigenous cultures to western academics, Herbalism is a remembrance of many hands, hearts and bodies on the earth.  

We always welcome feedback, and we thank all wisdom keepers before, now, and in the future for sharing knowledge.
