Welcome! I am so happy that you are here. I am Sarah, herbalist of (formally 'Jeanne') Wildherb Botanicals. Growing up in rural Appalachia, I learned a lot as a child about the ecology of my home, exploring the country, chewing on spicebush twigs. Now, as a mom, I venture back to those hills often to take my kids for walks in those familiar woods. They are little herbalists.
In my ongoing search for wisdom as an herbalist, I am inspired by folk and science-minded herbalists alike, foragers, farmers, conservationists, and my local community. I love to teach people about the plants they can find in their own area, and especially love to introduce kids to the wild tastes of backyard herbs. I have been a ceramics instructor, a preschool teacher, and an elementary educator, all while teaching kids about the science and art of our environment. I invite you and the kids to learn here. Thank you for joining me along my journey!
