it appears that it is indeed May, what a surprise! It took me a little while to publish this episode, but now that I did it feels perfectly times for the height of spring and the playful plant exploration offers itself to us everywhere. Kate Husted was a wonderful guest who shared so generously in a way that made me laugh, nourished me and left me feeling more curious and hopeful. Here is some of what we talked about:
- Making friends with the plants around us
- Working with anxiety in times of upheaval
- Running a free herbal clinic
- Unraveling systemic harm as a white settler herbalist
