Mountain Mary's is located in the small town of Eagle River, in the pristine Eagle Glacier Valley of the 495,000 acre, Chugach State Park in South Central Alaska.
Mountain Mary's is a labor of love. Love of herbs, nature and a more natural healthy life. MM's started in a kitchen 17 or so years ago, morphed into a store front and back to the home shop that it is today.

Dear Eco-Gardeners,

Boy-o-boy, we have an exciting line-up of courses for you—long & short!

Free movie, make-&-take your own greens tray, and finding nutrient-dense food

Intensive university training: growing by the organic method

Check out all the details and registration at

(See below for overall schedule)

YES, you can garden cooperatively with nature.

Slugs in your lettuce?

A wasp nest on your deck?

Weeds invading your yard?

Trees to cut down?

Is there is a way you might work with nature?

Yes! Come learn to consult the wise consciousness of nature itself. I am teaching courses based on my book, Ask Mother Nature, a Conscious Gardener’s Guide.

You’ll learn methods to talk directly to the wise consciousness of slugs, wasps, weeds, and trees themselves. Learn how to obtain the guidance from these Devas and Nature Spirits. Discover ways to reduce pests without battles, poisons, or force; and cut down a tree without trauma. (This focus is non-religious.) You’ll come away with new skills to heal the Earth—from the convenience of your own backyard! Choose the Co-Creative Gardening class in Anchorage or Palmer. Also advanced class. Please see attached flyers and schedule below.

YES, you have very sweet 2-hour options.

Get your hands in the soil-come plant a windowsill greens garden,

Watch and discuss a free movie,

Hear (and taste) how to select safe, good food you can trust.

All at Terra Bella Café & Bakery in Anchorage. See: schedule below, attachments, & website.

YES, there is still room for you in the Organic Gardening intensive.

Ready to produce more backyard food bonanza? Come join the fun, as we actually build a compost pile, learn what organic fertilizers to apply, and map strategies to ward off pests without poisons. All this in 5 evenings at Mat-Su College, plus a Saturday field trip! Personally tour actual greenhouse, vegetable, and fruit tree growing operations. Please see details in attachment and website.
