Bringing herbalism, art, and sustainability together.
Avant Garden Life aims to reawaken our traditional relationship with nature. Traditionally humans nourished themselves and the earth with sustainable, circular, zero-waste practices. They used their unique local environment for medicine as well as physical and spiritual nourishment. Avant Garden Life is a project which is reviving this tradition through workshops, private consultations and art projects.
Workshops at Avant Garden Life bring herbalism and food back to their traditional grassroots methods of gathering and preparing. Depending on the workshop, we will use regional wild plants (edible, medicinal, and sometimes foraged) to make herbal products or fermented foods.
Health Coaching at Avant Garden Life guide you in the life-long process of taking control of your own physical and spiritual health through natural preventative means. This involves natural remedies, intuitive cooking, and general self-care.
Products by Avant Garden Life are all created from hand-picked herbs from the forests of Brandenburg. They are processed from the crude product, by hand, to create the final product. Oils, waxes, honey are all sourced from small Berlin companies.
