EarthShine was created out of a love for the Earth, a passion for gardening, and a desire to pass along the sense of stewardship that knowledge of the living nature of the Earth fosters.
Deb Hayes is a Certified Holistic Health and Nutrition Counselor, a Holistic Health Educator, Healthy Cooking Instructor and Herbalist. Certified by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN), a member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP), and with much additional education, including Christina Pirello's Healthy Cooking and Integrative Health Program at Drexel University in Philadelphia. Deb has been teaching holistic health classes for over 30 years. She is passionate about educating people to give them the tools with which to create and sustain their health and the health of their families through nutrition and lifestyle enhancement.
Deb's herbal education began in her grandfather's garden, learning there of the medicinal qualities of many plants. This knowledge inspired a lifelong interest in herbalism (and also led her to explore her Native American heritage). Deb ultimately apprenticed with Rosemary Gladstar at her first East-Coast Apprenticeship in 1986, and continued on to become a Master Gardener.
"This was fantastic. I learned more in your three hour workshop than I
learned in a weekend at another program I took. Thank you for this great info!"|
