Wild Hudson Valley

With over fifteen years of experience as a historical ethnobotanist and a lifetime of experience in using native plants, I spend most of my time working with local flora. From sewing elm bark baskets to making tea from sassafras roots and staining ash wood spoons with hemlock bark, I bring my experience and knowledge of local native plant uses to people of all ages. For a schedule of my workshops on edible and medicinal plants, see the events calendar in the menu above. Interested in hiring us for a specialized (or general) ethnobotany walk, workshop or class? Contact us and we can arrange a time.
