Leah is the archetypal herbalist. You know the one. The one who lives at the edge of town, at the edge of the woods, with all the weird plants. Leah started the Trillium Center, an educational project for natural arts and offers musings, traditional medicine, and more at stickmedicine.org. The homestead where Leah lives stands just a few miles from the shore of the Great Lake of Erie, mostly wooded with an understory of medicinal plants. A hoop house provides greens nearly year round, a barn made of salvaged grain bins houses goats and chickens, and a small building made of clay, sticks, and straw bales is Leah’s folk art studio and classroom. Everything is surrounded by forest, the Tall Standing People. And the trees have shown Leah how to work with them as food, medicine, tools, and art.
Order tree medicines, sacred wood, herbs, hydrosols, and folk arts from Leah at stickmedicine.org or send a special request.
