"“We use the thyme and oregano sirup a lot my kids and I and we haven't been sick this winter. I live in the very cold in Quebec, Canada, with regular -20 and -30 Celcius and 8 feet of snow, every body is always sicks (especially kiddos) but not us ! "
"So far, I've loved this course and the video library. I'm learning so much and I just FEEL good while learning from you! I learned about horsetail, nettle and oatstraw to support healthy hair and am currently making tea from all of those. I also loved the video on how to make your own butter! I am using body oiling regularly now to help beat the dry air of winter and my skin feels so much better. I am making more healing teas, learning a ton by watching your video library."
"There are so many techniques I’ve learned from Medicine Woman! Outside of herbal teas and tinctures... I have really enjoyed the dry brushing and body oil... it has really stepped up my self care practices and my appreciation for my body. I definitely feel more connected with my body and feeling what comes up with it. Whether it's illness, exhaustion, or gas... sitting with myself and a cup of tea helps me go inward and find myself for the day. I love this group!"
"I am still learning from all the information that was presented each month and all that is in the library. WOW. Lots to learn in the Medicine Woman program… I do feel more engaged with my gardening skills and then using the plants in different medicine ways either through cooking or tinctures/vinegars/lotions.s, ie (remedies). I've made the elderberry syrup and also the elderberry gummy bears and take it all winter. Also I am making more ginger and turmeric teas. Using calendula, clover and artemisia as well. Sitting quietly and asking the body what it needs and really listening, I have made some good decisions for my health. I like your thought provoking questions and your inspirational "notes" in your emails. "
"Medicine Woman has reminded me to go outside and see what medicine I’m being offered. Ask the herbs first. Go outside first. That’s been the most valuable…just going outside and paying attention to what is around me. I see plants I just didn’t before. I feel like if I recognize them; they’re offering me some sort of help or knowledge. I think my friends see me incorporating this lifestyle and more and more come to me instead of their pharmacy. They ask more questions and try more things. It’s encouraging and makes me want to learn more."
"There is so much I have learned in Medicine Woman! I have started making the Medicine Bars and having them as a sweet treat instead of a lot of the processed chocolate and sugars around. I LOVE the way my body feels after eating them and often crave them over refined treats :) I have also become more in-tune to nature, to the plants around me and search for herbal remedies first compared to messaging our pediatrician right away. I am still a little new to the group and LOVE it so much! I had asked (Audrey) about herbal remedies for hair loss and started taking a few of the recommendations and wow! I truly have already noticed a difference in the thickness of my hair AND the length after a few weeks, particularly around my temples. I am so grateful for this guidance and so impressed with the results! I now ALWAYS think about what herbal remedies would work FIRST, prior to consulting our pediatrician/physician. Even when we have to take western meds I always couple with with some herbal remedies and feel like we get over illness MUCH quicker now with the herbal remedies! I am so grateful to be a part of this community and VERY grateful for all of these teachings! I feel like this is quickly becoming a lost art and I want to learn as much as I can so I can pass this information along to my kids as well! Thank you for all that you do! "
"As a new Medicine Woman, I have already learned so many new techniques; From simple tweaks to what I was already doing to completely new recipes that I had never even heard of before. I have been so pleased by the level of instruction, especially when creating remedies that include preparation techniques that are new to me."
"Healing & nourishing myself & my family is a priority. Utilizing what I’ve learned through the lessons has helped me incorporate it without feeling lost. I absolutely love the ease of the portal! The ability to scroll & find what I’m looking for is great. I truly appreciate how it’s broken down per season. The videos are super helpful, especially since I’m a visual learner.”
"Medicine Woman is a trusted resource I can go to when I am looking to add health recipes and remedies to my life. I love all that Audrey and the Medicine Woman resources, community and group offer. They truly are helping me take care of my and my family’s health and wellness."

I'll show you how to layer nutritious plant medicine into meals so that you and your family are eating foods that heal from the inside out.
These are some of the over 45 recipes you will enjoy in the Medicine recipe module.
A large and important part of this course is diving deep with the plants. We cover 34 herbs and mushrooms in detail, including how to identify them, harvest, forage, the medicinal qualities of each herb and how to use them in your home.
Each summer, we add new plant deep dives to the list, expanding this area of the course. And once you sign up for the course, you have lifetime access to current and any new content!
Learning the plants is where you really gain that freedom as a Medicine Woman of your home. Once you know the plants, you realize how your ability to take care of yourself and your family has grown outside of the grocery store. You can walk outside and find food and medicine every day.
Plants that we dive into deeply include:
St. John's Wort
And there are so many more!
If you've ever wanted to know how to promote healing for yourself and your family using plants, this course is for you! From salves that heal scraped-up skin to immune-boosting syrups that are delicious to boot, you will stock your home apothecary with good medicine made with your hands. Making your own herbal remedies connects you to the women who came before you and provides freedom from relying on large corporations to provide simple remedies and medicines....many that have side affects. Having studied with and learned from herbalists such as Susan Weed, Rosita Arvigo, Kami McBride and more, I have thousands of hours of study and hands on experience and the learning continues! The herbal remedies I teach are folk remedies that your great great grandmother might have used. These are remedies my family and I use daily. Simple, reliable and powerful.
This is not the full list but the highlights of what we cover in our herbal remedy module, which includes over 40 lessons.
Join me in our gardens as we grow food and herbal medicine through the spring and fall months. Our gardens, nestled on 6 wooded acres, are cultivated using permaculture and Earth-centered practices.

True freedom is found here.

"The value of the Medicine Woman Membership wisdom to me is more precious than gold. With the Membership, I've been enjoying learning from access to videos and worksheets and I've even started a Medicine Woman binder for reference. I trust Audrey's wisdom 100%. She has done the research and dedicated so much time, energy and is so passionate about sharing her wealth of knowledge. Thank you for this Medicine Woman Membership opportunity! "
"Becoming a member of the Medicine Woman tribe has been life-changing. Audrey not only shares her wisdom as a plant-based chef and medicine woman, she cultivates a very real sense of community. One of the biggest ways this membership has changed my life is my ability to fight off illness without the use of drugstore medicines. I'm a teacher and therefore come in contact with a fair amount of germs. I have now gone a full three months without a single sick day. In years past I have suffered from pneumonia and pleurisy! Learning to care for both myself and my husband is empowering and healing - physically and psychologically. I would (and have) recommend this membership to anyone who is ready for a deeper dive into the world of plants and herbals medicines, alongside a tribe of fellow medicine women."
"Medicine Woman has been truly life changing for me. I have always gardened and eaten healthy but this membership has opened my eyes to truly using food as medicine. Audrey has such an easygoing style and explains things so anyone can understand. As a visual learner, I love the videos that show me how to make the recipes, tinctures, medicines. My gardens have transformed from mostly vegetables and flowers with a few herbs to being filled with many more medicinal herbs and flowers. I have made most of the recipes and medicines and use many daily. I find myself going back to reread a recipe or re-watch a video and love knowing the information is at my fingertips when I need it. This is the best money I spend every month!!"
"Medicine Woman has enriched my life by giving me an outlet to show love to myself and my family in a healing way. It has been a grounding experience, allowing me to connect with something bigger than myself. Medicine Woman has also given me a new tribe of women who share similar values. I’ve been a fan of Chef Audrey’s for years, and I’m so glad I have the opportunity to learn from her even though I live in a different state."
"I’m more aware of nature and the medicines all around me. I have a better understanding of seasonal cycles of the planet and how to be more in tune with them in my actions"
A business owner and working mother of two small children, Audrey gets the struggle of living in a culture that does not prioritize true health and well-being. Over the past 15 years she has paved her own way toward independence, freedom, and peace of mind by using plants to heal and thrive.
Audrey Barron is a trained plant-based Chef and Herbalist with thousands of hours of study, apprenticing, teaching, and practice under her belt.
For over seven years Audrey created and ran her plant-based eatery, Ezra's Enlightened Cafe. Now retired from restaurant ownership, Audrey has shifted to focusing full time on their family farm, Wild Moon Acres, and her online and in person workshops and courses.
For the past 8 growing seasons, Audrey has lead volunteer groups at Wild Moon, school tours and held workshops around growing and using plants as medicine.
For over a decade, Audrey has taught nourishing cooking classes and worked with clients in building lasting well-being.
The full circle experience of growing and harvesting the plants, then preserving and creating nutrient-dense food and medicine - learning how to connect and use the plants to heal was her inspiration for Medicine Woman. Embodying this wisdom is a beautiful way to empower your life from the very foundation.
The freedom and independence of knowing how to use plants to heal is absolutely priceless. And to be part of a circle of women on the same path... this is a dream come true.
"The more I experience the magic of my children, the more I want for them....things like clean food, clean water, clean air and a world with more peace and less suffering. So, I'm making my contribution by growing, cooking, and serving clean food on our land and in our community, and sharing what I learn along the way.
I want more than just the cultural norm for my family... because the cultural norm is toxic food, air, and water. We deserve better. And so does Mother Earth. Change happens with us right in our kitchens. What we feed our family and how we care for them is a ripple effect through our community and beyond. When we are well, the world becomes well.
Medicine Woman provides an opportunity for women who feel the call to bring the ancient wisdom of using plants to heal and thrive into their homes. Women who desire well-being and connection for themselves and their family that stems from a lifestyle shift. Life changing. Life sustaining.
Are you ready? I would love to be your humble guide."
This course is unique in that we offer not only many tools to help you get started on the plant path, but self care lessons as well. I fully believe care for ourselves is so important, especially when we desire to care for others. As a trained Maya Abdominal Therapist, I offer both vaginal steaming and castor oil pack lessons brought to you directly from Medicine Men and Women through the ages along with other potent self care techniques I've used for years in my home and with clients.

It helped me be more balanced and aware in the world and in my body and taught me ways to help keep healing traditions alive. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to better themselves or the world we live in."
"Since joining Medicine Woman, I have learned to apply herbal medicines to everyday life. I feel more connected to the plants, I love going foraging and sharing what I’ve learned with my husband on hikes, I have found a passion for growing and drying my own tea blends...this course is overall wonderful information everyone could benefit from. I have always felt connected to plants, always enjoyed their benefits and even their company so finding this community has been a much needed addition to my life. Thank you for offering it."
"I've been so grateful to have this wealth of information and resources that is easily accessed through the library. It has been helpful to have the gardening videos when prepping for the upcoming growing season.

I'm excited to grow with the fellow Medicine Woman Tribe and be a part of such a wonderful community"
"Medicine Woman has provided me the knowledge and confidence to live a healthier lifestyle along with inspiring family & friends to do the same. It has opened up a passion in me centered on herbal gardening and healing that will forever be a part of my life"
