2019 will be my fourth season managing the gardens at Merryspring Nature Center in Camden, ME this is my sixth growing season in the midcoast having spent the first two managing four acres of medicinal herb production at Avena Botanicals in Rockport, ME. I’ve grown herbs and flowers at various farms in the northeast including Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in NY and Farmacy Herbs in Rhode Island. My connection to herbs was birthed in NYC, where the mugwort growing from the cracks in the sidewalks gave me visions of studying more deeply with the plants. It lead me to rural Rutland, OH to intern at United Plant Savers Goldenseal Botanical Sanctuary and to study herbal medicine with a variety of amazing teachers, and the plants themselves, across the US. Herbalism is a form of activism and I am committed to keeping plant medicine accessible and a place of empowerment for all people.
Where did your connection to the plants begin? Are you looking to deepen that connection? Or to plant the seed? I would love to talk with you about it.
