Nancy has been studying and teaching about herbs for over 35 years. Exploring the woods and waterly places surrounding her childhood home in New Jersey, then living in Vermont for 30 years on 25 acres where she raised her family with natural remedies from the field, forest, and her organic herb farm, the plants became her touchstone. In Vermont, she worked as office manager and staff teacher for Rosemary Gladstar at Sage Mountain and United Plant Savers.
Now living in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York, she teaches at conferences and symposiums throughout New England about herbs, native plants, natural healing, mushrooms and deliciously healthy cooking. She has had an apprentice program and many classes at her home in Fort Ticonderoga where she designed and installed a Medicinal Herb Garden, walks and talks for the Land Conservancy, Master Gardeners Program, North Country Community College and Adirondack Folk School.
Her days are delightfully filled with making Medicinal Mushroom Extracts, teaching and sharing her passion for self-reliant, deeply rooted, green-spirited lifestyle with the garden herbs and wild plants as her guides and companions.
