Forager | Naturalist | Earth Steward | Teacher

I’ve always felt a connection with plants. Whether native or invasive, they all have something valuable to share. I love sharing the wisdom of our local flora with anyone curious enough to ask.  As a teacher, my goal is to serve these plants who I've met over the years, introduce them to new people,  share the gift of appreciation & gratitude for their blessings, & to share simple ways to incorporate wild foods & medicines into our lives.

I believe it is my honor to share the glory of our magnificent planet and participate in the abundance of connection through wild edibles, honorable harvest, purposeful preparations & preservation, field & forest stewardship and so much more...
