Who We Are
Zia Energetics Permaculture is a family business based on being the change. Over the course of the last 15 years Jesse and Johanna Boudreau have been exploring the arts of Permaculture in the historic agricultural valley of Chimayo, NM where we have been market growers, homesteaders, foragers, mushroom cultivators, beekeepers, cob builders and hobby herbalists. During this time our business was in creating permaculture gardens for private individuals throughout the area of Northern NM. This served to hone our skills in rainwater harvesting, edible landscaping, food forests and wild meadow gardens.
We have always had a deep connection with nature. Johanna began learning as a child to forage wild medicines and plant dyes for weaving and painting with her mother. Jesse began foraging for mushrooms at a young age with his stepfather on backpack outings. These early experiences started our path as foragers and healers. Since those early days our passion blossomed and flourished.
In 2005 Jesse completed an intensive 6 month permaculture program with Scott Pittman and earned his permaculture certification and earth based vocations certificate. He also mentored with Joel Glanzberg of Pattern Mind and Donna Bonner, creator of the soil amendment “Yum Yum Mix”.
At a certain point in our path we began to experience various forms of illness that we later found were caused by diet choices. Through exploration of living foods other nutritional perspectives, we found that not all of us were created equal and we all have unique needs…that dietary fads were not the solution to good health. For years now we have been studying the concepts of Ayurveda, Alchemy, Medical Astrology, TCM, and Herbalism.
Recently we undertook study at the School of Evolutionary Herbalism where we gained a greater understanding of how to to meet our individual needs through the help of foods and herbs.
In times of economic, environmental and social uncertainty, Jesse and Johanna hope to impart their skills to those who seek a way to transition with greater ease to a more healthful paradigm. Through medicinal garden design and consultation, educational workshops in permaculture, foraging, nutrition and herbalism we truly hope to empower you to facilitate your growth to a happier, healthier you!
