Looking backward...

Where it Started?

Growing up in the foothills of the Adirondacks I was surrounded be the splendors of the wild woods. I didn't know how wonderful nature was till the day the man that lived down the road from us showed me one simple thing. He told me that if I cooked the new shoots of the milkweed in two boils of water that I could eat them. That was the key that would set the path for the rest of my life.

My Background

I have spent the last 20 years or so studying in one form or another what nature can provide for us. Whether it be food or medicinal. I have been studying everything from the everyday uses to the magical properties of plants in the wild, and in the garden.
