If digging into garden soil is like water for your soul, then welcome!
I finally decided to launch this blog when the tools became too easy to ignore (thanks Godaddy) and I found myself wanting to center a community of folks around green things. I've spent years developing and managing marketing campaigns in the United States for European regions and companies. In 2017 I began volunteering at the San Diego Botanic Garden, and knew I had found "my people." I also received a Permaculture Design Certificate in 2018 with Larry Santoyo in Los Angeles and went on to study herbalism with an apprenticeship at the School for the Sacred Wild in LA. I spent some time exploring canna-wellness for women (Kikoko tea) and still am the San Diego Ellementa Chapter leader.
I am currently continuing my herbal studies independently with the Sage Country Herbs (Shana Lipner) in the Pauma Valley, with a focus ethnobotanical herbalism. I also am happily advising Pando Populus in Los Angeles, which provides a central hub of programs connecting students, colleges, faith based communities and civic leaders to address LA's Sustainability Plan, and serve on the Berry Good Foundation in San Diego which focuses on food security and food education initiatives in the bioregion of San Diego and Baja California.
This is a green place for all things plant and earth related -- and whether you are canna friendly or not, I hope you will enjoy your visit and join the community we are building.
