Kathy, Lady Sweetgrass | Work Exchange Coordinator
As a very young girl growing up in rural Wisconsin I connected with the woods. I found comfort from my first plant ally, bergamot. I would crush the dried flower buds and inhale the aroma. All the abuse I endured, melted away. Thus began my journey, remembering ancestral knowledge and wisdom, both enlightening and guiding me. I have gratitude to many healers and elders, for time spent in the woods connecting with the earth medicines. Always circling back to the healing of self and others.
