Blazing Star Herbal School is dedicated to teaching traditional herbal medicine in a way that supports a more sustainable future for all members of the green world and shows respect for the integrity of nature. We offer a unique perspective on herbalism, weaving social and political aspects of health and healing through the study of medicinal herbs and food practices. We inspire students to find their own healing path by creating a personal relationship with the plant world. The school also serves as a local and national resource for education and networking.
A lover of real food, she organizes the local chapter of the Weston A. Price Organization, bringing community together through local food activism. When she is not teaching apprentices or participating in herbal events you may find her frequenting local coffee houses with friends new and old discussing dreamy ideas, feminist causes, or simply wondering in the woods looking for wild mushrooms to cook up for dinner for whoever dare show up.
