About Our Presenter
Shawn Mack is a Certified Holistic Health Coach who received his certification through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and also holds a degree in Human Development. Shawn has always had an interest in health and wellness and an eagerness to learn more about overall conscious living.
In 2018, as his health started to decline, with the underlining causes being inflammation, Shawn decided that the doctors only solution of prescription drugs as the daily norm was not the answer, but only a way to treat the symptoms. Determined to find a holistic approach to live and heal, and also reclaim his health, Shawn researched and found that a Plant Based diet was linked to decreased inflammation within the body and a reduction of other types of illnesses. So Shawn began his plant based transition and began to heal quickly.
Shawn adapted to cooking plant based meals and found a new passion for not just cooking, but nourishing the mind, body, and soul. With no formal training, Shawn approaches cooking more as “nourishing” as it’s a healing, meditative, and intentional process and a culinary ritual. While continuing to explore ways of healing holistically through food, Shawn’s hunger to feed the soul continues to expand. “By being intentional and putting love into your food, you began to love yourself more, and the body reacts to that love in return”.
About Honey Locust Pharm
Nestled in the fertile Hudson Valley on land worked by Native Americans, Honey Locust Pharm House has long been a unique, small-scale-farm model for sustainable agriculture. Honey Locust is committed to sustainable, organic farming practices. No chemical pesticides or fertilizers are used. Traditional and heirloom varieties of plants have always been selected based on pleasing the palette. The latest corporate-patented plants and genetically modified organisms have had no place in our fields.
Historically, proprietor Nancy MacNamara drew upon her personal experience in foodservice, and her family tradition of farming, to create an array of produce grown to meet the high standards of gourmet chefs and other discerning consumers.
This commitment to a diverse variety of produce, grown sustainably and with reverence for the earth which yields the food, as well as respect for those who consume it, has earned Honey Locust Farm House a reputation for quality. The same values that guided the Farm House serve the Pharm House and the cultivation — and foraging — that go into producing products that nurture and restore our well-being.
An accessible option for those who need it.
