Our Teachers & Inspiration

sef.jpgWe have several teachers and mentors who have contributed much to our lives and to the health and wholeness of Shining Mountain Herbs.

The benefit of a true teacher can never be understated and must never be taken for granted. Teachers and mentors lead by example, they point you in the right direction and allow the student to find their own path.  We consider ourselves blessed to have such powerful people in our lives. Thank you all for being and for bringing your wisdom to the farm.  

We also consider the plants as teachers. We give gratitude for their patience, their soft voices, and their willingness to touch us in our hearts.
