Ash resides in the Appalachian Mountains, tending an off-grid farm and homestead. While she loves caring for organic gardens and the daily shepherding of animals, her passion lies in Earth medicine. "I love the many aspects of wild-crafting, everything from plant ID, ethical and sustainable harvesting, tuning into your surroundings... I am especially fond of wandering into nature and exploring any surprises that cross my path. While I'm rooted in the science available, I also get to know the plants and the elements by sitting with them; they become allies, and we work from there."
