Hi, I’m Tom Petruno, your local (site) herbalist. I had no clue years ago studying biology in college, that it would be a stepping stone to become spiritually connected to plants. I enjoy sharing my knowledge of the medicinal properties of plants and shedding a bit of light on the spiritual side that plants have to offer, too.
My preferred style is using herbs in teas, where I combine them intentionally while tapping into their energy. I have a love for gardening and when I am able to grow my own herbs and use them in various preparations, I am in bliss.
I am married to Sarah and when on walks in the woods, I love to point out forgeable, or very NOT forgeable, things to our 2 children. Even though I will probably be reprimanded by our daughter for being a slow poke. Otherwise, I love college football, homebrewing, and staying home being the main caretaker of our children, which is my day job that I’m not planning on quitting any time soon.
To find my articles on the blog, look for the herbal and planted related subject matter!
