Jayme Cannon didn’t fully understand what she was getting herself into when she signed up for the Traditional Herbalist program at The Living Earth School of Herbalism in the year 2000…little did she know that her decision would forever change the way she saw and experienced her world.
While researching the medicinal properties of an every day cuppa tea, she was excited by the history and mythology that she found interspersed amidst her research. She went on to share her discoveries through teaching at the Royal Ontario Museum, as well as colleges, libraries and cafes (and wherever she has an audience). Jayme has an engaging teaching style that stems from her desire to educate and entertain.
Having returned to school in 2013, she is about to become an RMT and is very excited to blend her knowledge of herbs with her massage practice to encourage deeper healing for those in need.
Jayme’s herbal training began with a strong focus on local, sustainably wildcrafted medicine. Much of her dispensary has been harvested from forests, so when she discovered Permaculture and Food Forests, she knew she had found a path that would further deepen her connection with the plant world.
