Monarda is an intuitive folk herbalist, tea maker, storyweaver, and educator. They have studied herbalism and fermentation since 2007, launching the Wild Farmacy Project, Tea for the People, and the Driftless Herbal Exchange Network in that time. As they have moved around Wisconsin and Minnesota several times, they have created many permaculture medicine sanctuaries, now installing them for others. They have found a passion for empowering folks to realize their own gifts, whether in the kitchen or garden. Their educational focus is making traditional herbal techniques and practices more accessible, so that learners can practice herbal crafts in their own homes. Their work is cross-pollinated with story-telling, social and environmental permaculture, spiritual herbalism, and healing justice.
