A must have for anyone seeking better health and wellness using herbs.
We received the Herbalism book as part of the Whole Living class in 2022. What we learned has been a life changer for me and my family as we look to find better health through the food we eat. I thought I knew a lot but apparently I didn’t. The book is an incredible resource, one that I use almost daily, with recipes and easy to read guidance on how and why to use herbs and so much more. Thanks Krista and Sky!

Thank you! 💚

This is my #1 resource in my library of herbal remedies books! It helps me to remember what was taught in the Whole Living Class, as well. It is very user-friendly and easy to understand. I absolutely love it! You definitely should get the Cookbook to accompany it. They make a great set! Thank you Krista and Skye for all your hard work!

Thank you!

Forrest Green Farm Rocks! "Wellness Simplified" is my go-to reference for memory-jogging on herbs. I've attended Whole Living Classes many times and can attest from experience that everyone at FGF is dedicated to life-long learning in this extremely important domain. Just as every season is different, and every spring, summer, fall and winter are respectively different, FGF adjusts their material, teaching and impact on our community. I appreciate them with great joy and respect!

Aw thank you Steve!

I have taken classes with Krista (I highly recommend all her classes) and this book has been so helpful. It puts everything together for you in one book. So much wonderful information. A must have for everyone!

This is what I have been looking for! A resource I can have at a moments notice and can take with me into the garden. It has helped me grow, identify, harvest and put to good use many plants in my yard.

The knowledge and wisdom about herbs is obvious and is shared clearly and generously. Health and well-being are at the forefront and that is greatly appreciated

Thank you, Krista and Skyler, for all your hard work and sharing it!

Thank you! 😊

Wellness Simplified is perfect for anyone on a wellness journey. From those just starting out to someone with knowledge that would like a reference guide, this book has tips, beautiful photos, an amazing index, and more. It takes you through each step to start a whole living lifestyle. Soil, seeds, harvesting, and storing your treasures. It doesn't matter if you're a deck gardener or have land, it will work for your needs.

I also appreciate that it's family-friendly. There are so many recipes that my daughter loves and I never thought she would try! The plant medicine I have made has already proved invaluable as well. This will be going out as holiday gifts this year because everyone needs one!

Thank you! We are so glad you have found the book useful and that you enjoy the recipes!

Thanks! 🙂 We are so glad you find the book easy to reference.

I'm currently working my way through this book and have enjoyed it immensely. The instructions are simple and straight forward in the recipes. The book explores not just the plant and it's medicinal value but also it's energetics and gives you a variety of ways to use it. The font is a good size and the pages are elegant & colorful (not busy). This book works as a great companion to the Whole Living Course but also can serve as a stand alone. I have shelves and shelves of herb books and appreciate the holistic approach of this one with an emphasis on using herbs in your everyday diet through food.

Thank you!

Taking the Whole Living Classes at Forrest Green Farm was the best education I have EVER had. It was so incredibly interesting and is valuable every day. The book is so helpful as it is very well-organized and makes it easy to find what I need. I reference it all the time. I'm thankful for all that Forrest Green Farm offers.

Thank you Justine!
