Ginger Webb is a community herbalist, mother, certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher, permaculturist, and wild plant lover/expert. She has owned and operated Texas Medicinals since 1999, supplying Central Texas with high quality herbal medicine. She is the Founder, Director and Primary Instructor of Sacred Journey School of Herbalism, which offers an 8-month, 200-hour herbalist training program, along with Community Classes, Kitchen Witchery Classes, and Advanced Level courses. Her intention is not just to train people to become herbalists, but most importantly to help awaken and nurture their innate love for the plants and the earth. Ginger counts many teachers along her herbal path, most notably Michael Moore (1999 SWSBM graduate) and Sage Maurer (Gaia School of Healing & Earth Education). She is one of the pillars of the Central Texas herbalist community and may be best known for combining the ancient wisdom of the chakra system with Western herbal medicine in her Materia Medica.
Caroline Riley Carberry is a Texas native who grew up in the garden and free ranging on the Texas coast with her family. She discovered permaculture design while living in Colorado in 2004 and soon incorporated the ethics and principles into her Montessori classroom as a foundation to learn from nature with youth. With a passion for experiential learning and regenerative design, Caroline instructs Permaculture Design Courses through Austin Permaculture Guild. Her goal is to create a unique learning opportunity for her students from her vast experience. Caroline has studied permaculture with many great instructors, including Geoff Lawton, Warren Brush, Judd Hobbs and Dick Pierce.
She founded the Whole Life Learning Center in 2011 with her husband. This holistic learning center for children ages 3-14 years is where she focuses her efforts, stewarding the almost 2 acre micro farm and living classroom. The gardens are full of native and adapted edible and medicinal plants which are harvested, prepared and sold through 7Feather Trading Post. You can find her here amongst the plants, next to the pond or laughing with the goats, chickens, ducks and children.
When not at the learning center Caroline can be found searching out cool waters for swimming and enjoying the retreat of her South Austin home with her family.
