I am a community herbalist in training. I believe true healing happens on community, family, relationship, individual, and environmental levels. My current projects include: Bloom Justice, a neighborhood flower farm in Western Addition/ Fillmore run by kids and distributed to local restaurants and shops; Public Option Herbals, an herbal free clinic run by herb students; Urban Commons SF a non-profit that supports active use of urban commons towards diverse ends to regenerate ecologies and create abundance and health for humans and non-humans; and Hayes Valley Farm, a community-run permaculture farm located in the heart of San Francisco. I am also a gardener and designer with particular interest in gardens that serve the health needs of those that pass through them. I work two days a week at The Scarlet Sage Herb Co in the Mission in San Francisco. Sometimes I make art. I write. I am always making tinctures.
