Who is Don Ollsin?

For the past five decades, I’ve been helping people cultivate a deeper relationship to the plant world. I’ve been interested in plants, herbs, and fungi for as long as I can remember. I offer excellent educare (bringing out that which is within) that heals while it informs. I offer books, courses, and programs that guide you through sustained development in your journey of self-healing, community healing, and earth healing. Your healing begins on the first day of the study. Learning not only the healing uses of plants but seeing them as teachers/other living beings you can get to know. I also mentor herbal students who want to become professional herbalists.
