Researching the role of wild, edible plants in personal and planetary heath.


I am a Ph.D. researcher and forager based in Durango, Colorado. I am interested in issues of human and ecological health in a changing climate. Examining issues of food justice, ecological literacy, community resilience and soil health all inform my work and teaching. The intention of this website is to help animate the value of wild food in a rapidly changing and food insecure world.

Here you'll find information about my recent wild adventures in foraging, soil restoration, and wild food projects. You can find information about my dissertation research on the About Me page. 

If you'd like to learn about any of these topic, have questions about my work, or just want to connect, feel free to send me a message on the Contact page.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
