who am I?
Well, that is the question to beat all questions... and not one I can truthfully answer with words, but let's skirt around the edges.
I am a herbalist, living in central Victoria on Dja Dja Wurrung country.
In hindsight, I've been talking with plants, the moon and the stars since I was a teenager. A tree planting job in my early 20's showed me my love for plants. And a wandering journey to North America, a few years later was the beginning of my journey into herbalism. The discovery of herbal medicine seemed to take the threads of my heart; plants, making things and talking with the universe, and wove them all together into a neat little bundle called "herbalism". What I didn't realise at the time was that "herbalism" is actually an ancient maze of a rabbit warren. Even so, since I stuck my curious head into the rabbit hole and found myself falling... I haven't yet looked back.
Ten years on, and I'm finally finding some footing in this mysterious world of plants. Over the next little while, I hope to offer more nature connection and herbal classes, and will possibly open up an online store.
On the side, I also cook wholesome meals for retreats and gatherings.
Be in touch if you would like a herbal workshop for a group or a plant walk in your own garden. Or, if you're in need of a potion, or a cook for an event.
