Founder, medicine maker, herbalist and farmer.
Daniel has been dedicated to the Herbal Path for over 15 years. His Green journey started with Plant Teachers in his late teens that helped guide him to a more balanced, natural and holistic way of living. Since then he has fortified his knowledge through direct experience with nature, self study, travel and more recently formal training from the East West School of Planetary Herbology and with world famous alchemist and chemist Robert Bartlett of the Spagyricus Institute.
Formerly the owner/herbalist of Blue Apples Arts & Wellness Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Daniel now focuses on medicine making, farming, wild harvesting, teaching and private practice as an herbalist in rural Nova Scotia.
His practice is eclectic and ever evolving drawing from the global systems of Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Western Herbalism, Plant Spirit Medicine, Astrology and Spagyria/Alchemy.
Daniel is a professional practitioner and board member of the Herbalist Association of Nova Scotia, a board member of the Canadian Council of Herbalist Associations, a member of the International Alchemy Guild, a member of the Inner Garden Alchemy Research Group and teaches herbal pharmacy/medicine making at the Bloom Institute of Herbal Studies.
