Ethical Herbal Wildcrafting
April 20, 2019 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 am
At The Alchemist’s Kitchen in Stockton Market
What better way to celebrate Earth Day than to go on a plant walk!
Gathering plants from the wild, otherwise known as wildcrafting, provides many benefits. It connects us to the natural world and the changing of the seasons, and it connects us to our ancestral heritage. It is empowering, plus it also helps ensure that our medicines are fresh, sustainable and of high quality. In addition, wildcrafting can be ecofriendly and cost effective.
In this class we will discuss guidelines on how to carefully and conscientiously collect medicines. We will then go out and discover the incredible healing power of a few of the wild plants that are growing locally. Individuals will get to take home handouts that include some of my favorite recipes!

My mission is to reconnect people with plants for optimum health and balance through herbal consultations, custom blends, and classes/workshops because plants and people are made for each other.
I am the founder of Cultivating Roots LLC, a small-scale herb farm and apothecary based out of Bucks County, PA and Titusville, NJ. Most recently, I formed an Herbalists Without Borders chapter in Mercer County, NJ because I believe health and wellness is our birthright, and everyone deserves equal access.
I have a Bachelor of Sciences degree in biology, and have spent the last several years working and studying with different herbalists. I finished the two-year clinical herbalist training program at David Winston’s Center for Herbal Studies, where I am currently taking a Therapeutics program. In addition, I am working with Andrew Appello of Healthy Living Acupuncture in Princeton, NJ to become a registered herbalist of the American Herbalist Guild. I will always be a student, and will forever be in awe of the plants.
