Welcome to Iris Weaver and Soul Gardens.

My passion is to help you learn about the plants that grow around you, both wild and cultivated, that you can use for food and medicine. The plants that are in your backyard, your garden, or the fields and woods, are part of caring for yourself with healthy food and sustainable, affordable, locally-available herbal healthcare. I want you to be able to take your health and your healthcare, and that of your family, into your own hands. I teach and lead plant walks, teach about making and using herbal medicines and products, herbal skincare, and blog and share my thoughts and musings on different topics. Please take a look around my site and see what catches your heart and your interest!
