We have had an amazing harvest of sweet potatoes and although massive they have the sweetest of flavours.
A lot has happened in the last six months, it has been a busy and abundant time. The gardens and the centre have grown and so have we. Here are plenty of photos to share some of what has been going on!
Huge amounts to look forward to in 2017. Updates to the rest of the website coming soon.

Historically, astrological data was always part of the realm of healing. Paul would like to offer herbalists, herbal students and all those interested in this fascinating fusion of Herbalism and Astrology a better understanding from such a wealth of valuable information. There are many insights to be gained from a patient’s natal chart which explains the underlying causes of that patient’s health crises to learning the timing of stressful change and how to use the information to aid the patient in navigating change and the herbal choices to aid in plotting a successful outcome.

Spring has most certainly sprung here at Ceratonia and there has been a mighty growth spurt in the wild and planted. As the gardens grow, we have been busy tending to the land, the trees- including planting a few more, propagating vegetables and herbs and planting out in various areas. The wild flowers are magnificent and give such joy and nourishment to the natural world. Slowly but surely learning more and more about the great medicines contained within these beauties.
Ceratonia has had many guests of all ages and at one point we had many little beautiful energetic children staying. We also have had a good spell of herbalists visiting and getting a flavour of Ceratonia with plenty herbal discussion. Great energy from these inspiring people and an essence of Restoration was had. Restoration is an important theme that will continue to be explored and nourished here at Ceratonia.
Lovely to welcome some of the people from Transition Lagoa, amazingly the rains kept off for the whole time and opened up as soon as all was gone!
Folk have come for some one to one teachings and others have been coming for Healing Rests, gaining strength and Peace.
As you can see photos of people are not abundant! Many people visiting Ceratonia don't want their photos put on the blog and Corey the main photographer has a passion about plants!

We spent a beautiful day with Lavender- Alfazema. The wild Lavender growing here at Ceratonia is known as Rosmaninho.
First impressions of this plant were of a beautiful aroma. Calm and peaceful. Comforting old friend.
A familiar knowing.
Taking time to observe the growing cycles of the plant, being open to the frequency interchange and experience how we physically and emotionally respond to being with the plant.
We learnt of the unassuming protective strength this plant has. Helps us to keep going through endurance and builds up our energy reserves.
We drank the flowers in a tea, wow the colour was gorgeous! photos could not quite capture the magnificence of blues, greens and purples. Aromatic glory!
In a few weeks time the gardens are going to be saturated by the purple blooms.
There is a powerful nature to Lavender, the antiseptic, anti fungal and anti-inflammatory actions to name a few.
One of the best first aid herbs you can have!
Last years flowers were ground in a pestle and mortar and burnt on a rock. The most wonderful aromatic smell, creating a deep smudge cleanse.
We made an essence with the flowers.
Lavender can take us far and soothe the overwhelm. Through the tears this plant can help you to laugh and trust and to see the bigger picture.
Lavender helps to create space, ease and relaxation.
See our Workshops\Events page for more details on what is going on this year at Ceratonia.
