Hello from the other side of this epic eclipse magic. While the dust is settling I wanted to share this beautiful, beautiful conversation I’ve had with Madeleine Keller, who is such a skilled and thoughtful folk herbalist. I really loved listening to them and I hope you will too. Here is some of what we talked about:
- Finding our way back to relationships with plants
- Reconnecting with ancestral practices
- Building health and resilience in community
- Being a village witch
Madeleine is a queer white non-binary zinester and folk herbalist residing on un-ceded Awaswas-speaking Ohlone territory, known to some as California’s Central Coast. They guide folks to connect to the plant world, demystify their bodies, and re-enchant their relationships to land and community. They regularly offer a variety of paid and free workshops intended to support community healing and assist in a couple community health/herbalism projects. They also love to write zines!
