Laurie Love Bio

Laurie was inspired at a young age to develop solutions to create a more sustainable planet. She began her journey as a paralegal and social justice activist, but quickly realized her best efforts would be working directly with the land, and teaching others about creating symbiosis with other parts of nature. Her healing journey addressing an autoimmune disease became deeply intertwined in her quest, and she developed a vision to create a garden-centric wellness education center that provides solutions for affordable food, natural medicine, and holistic wellness education for all.

For over a decade, Laurie has intentionally spent her time learning about plants, holding various roles on farms and gardens, attaining a permaculture design certification and master’s degree in agriculture, studying medicinal plants with indigenous tribes in Central America, and completing 1000+ hours of herbalism study. Since 2006, she's also learned and practiced holistic wellness methods for personal healing, such as yoga, meditation, nutrition, breathwork, astrology, reiki, and herbal medicine.

Laurie’s mission is teaching others how to heal themselves as a means to heal and give back to the Earth. Her role is to empower and facilitate healing for others on their wellness journeys. She is passionate about connecting her clients and students with plant medicines and holistic health practices that cultivate emotional well-being and nourish the mind, body, and spirit.

Laurie holds an MS in Agriculture and Adult/Extension Education from CSU, and a BA in Political Science from Purdue University. She’s a certified herbalist, yoga teacher and reiki practitioner, as well as an astrologer, garden educator, and professional event coordinator. She is pursuing certifications in Clinical Herbalism and Holistic Nutrition from the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism, and Alchemical Herbalism from the School of Evolutionary Herbalism.

Currently, Laurie is now accepting new Herbal and Flower Essence clients. Flower essences are safe, effective botanical remedies that work directly with emotional well-being, soul development, and bring healing and balance when one is feeling stuck in old or unhealthy patterns. Each session is treated as sacred ceremony and often integrated with astrological wisdom. This subtle form of plant medicine has been an integral part of Laurie’s personal growth, and she’s excited to share it with others.
