||As a plant lover/ herbalist : grower, medicine maker, forager, and teacher, I am humbled by the precious medicine and wisdom I receive every day. My work here is about so much more than just growing or harvesting and selling herbs. It’s about building relationships with the plants, the soil, the pollinators, our creature kin, the trees, the larger human community and the Earth beneath our feet. It’s about disconnecting from social and cultural “programming” to Re-member our connection and place in the web of life.
My herbal journey/experience has gifted me with an abundance of learning opportunities : from various teachers in the traditional Western Herbalism model, to delicious bits of Folk and Ayurvedic Herbalism here and there, a healthy dose of self taught learning, to the treasured Green Pharmacy Garden working for wise elder and ethnobotanist , Dr. Jim Duke. This list would not be complete of course, without kudos to my greatest teachers…our plant allies themselves and good ole’ Mamma Earth. Experience aside, I consider myself to be a perpetual, life long student !!
