Journei Bimwala is a Clinical Family Herbalist, Nutrition Health Coach, Foraging practitioner, Certified Yoga Instructor and Educator.

I want to inspire you to live freely, become more self sufficient, and protect your health. I share my knowledge information on Health, Herbalism, foraging and wildcrafting, fermenting and preserving, cooking whole foods from scratch, and making herbal products.

My goal is teach you all you need to know to keep yourself and family healthy. That’s just the beginning!

Being in nature and observing the way the land changes day by day, season by season, and year by year, is my life. I walk outside, on paths that have been walked many times over the years and observe the land. What is growing well? What is flourishing? What is struggling? What seeds are being sown and what is lying fallow? As a bioregional herbalist, an herbalist who works primarily with the plants that grow locally to me, these natural cycles and rhythms have become a natural part of life for me.
