Urban Herbology is:
The natural world has always deeply fascinated me – we are part of it and need to respect it. I express this through teaching, writing and being in green spaces.
My professional background is in science and special education, complementary therapies, permaculture and nature education. Outside of paid work I am involved in creating urban foraging sites and increasing food sovereignty. I enjoy yoga, meditation, walking and playing bansuri.
I was raised in a farm house on the edge of Bristol, surrounded by brambles, rosehips, rabbits, birds, cows and moon daisies. My love of life led me to become a geneticist and then a biology teacher. Alongside, I dived into the world of herbs, studying everything I could find and speaking to everyone I could, who had knowledge to share. During the past 25 years I have studied herbalism (non-clinical) with Susun Weed and Glennie Kindred, Permaculture with Patrick Whitefield and Permaculture Visions, Horticultural Therapy with Thrive. I am now working towards the Permaculture Diploma, specialising in urban permaculture, small scale forest gardens and permaculture in education. For mentions and interviews in the media click here.
