Lifelong herbal study. My family taught me the plants in the mountains in North Carolina and in the swamps and prairies of rural north Florida. I’ve studied Western-European herbal traditions, Ayurveda and traditional Chinese herbal lore and have been a working herbalist for 30+ years.
Shamanic work, scientific research and folk traditions all matter. Currently I am focused on teaching and mentoring others to be herbalists and on exploring more and more local wild foods and medicinal plants.
