Laura Is interested in the rediscovery and preservation of traditional healing practices around the world, and intend to promote through my work a cultural, intergenerational exchange between children and their elders, and creating opportunities for this to happen.Learning about herbs and their properties provides a powerful connection to our past, which is at risk of being lost.
Children are wonderfully responsive to Herbal Medicine, and receptive to the Earth’s teachings. They are the perfect vectors for plant knowledge past and future.
