OAK INLOVE

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 gifts 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,  and share the gift of Earth Connection, participating in our living web and leaving it better than we found it for all the beings that dwell on spaceship Earth, and the next seven generations. 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...
