I told my husband last year that I wanted to be a Ranger. No, not joining the army, but neing one of those woodsy people who know all about animals and the outdoors and stuff. Sort of an uberBoyScout. Anyway, there is no way that is really going to fit into my lifestyle. However, I did enjoy starting to learn about herbs, in cooking and medicine, and found a cool site for beginners that you might like.
He approaches herbalism and such from the point of view that you probably don't already know all about it. That was very helpful to me.
Now I have my own small herb garden and have really enjoyed using God's medicine when I or my family get sick.
