Sarah Corrigan is a co-founder of ROOTS School, offering education in wilderness living and naturalist skills. In study and practice, she is awed by herbal medicine’s ability to improve lives as it supports our health and more. It enacts an alliance with the natural world, educates in self care, enables gratitude in harvest, and engenders wonder at the beauty of plants. She is driven by how incorporating plants into our daily lives helps us to be more capable, responsible, and healthy human beings. Contact Sarah.
Margi Gregory is a mother of two daughters who has worked as an educator with students from preschool through college. She loves her herb garden and is passionate about bringing the earth-centered practice of green medicine to Vermont communities. She feels we are so fortunate to be living in the midst of fields, forests and gardens that enable us to reclaim many aspects of our own health care and promote life-long vitality. She is honored to consult with people about their health concerns and to work together, using herbs to strengthen and heal our bodies and promote general well-being. Contact Margi.
Denise Quick is a gardener, teacher and botanist. She is generally happiest when she has dirt under her fingernails (although she does try to clean up for company). Denise has found the study of plant medicine to be powerful in the way that it merges many areas of personal interest: plants, science, environmental conservation, and our spiritual connection to the natural world. She’s grateful for what she has gained from her studies and looks forward to helping others connect with plants. Contact Denise.
Susan Staley has been engaged in the discipline of visual and poetic arts, community development and nutrition for well over a decade. She has found a melding of all these in the pursuit of whole plant medicine. Susan firmly believes in the body’s inherent healing capabilities; that when provided with the building blocks in the form of medicinal plant constituents, basic nutrients in whole food and a compassion for one’s self and others we undergo giant shifts towards a balanced and healthy life. Susan’s developing practice focuses on Five-Phase Chinese Theory, Traditions in Western understanding of tissue state, and an approach that leaves room for creative expression of client and practitioner. Contact Susan.
Elise Walsh is a yoga instructor and educator who enjoys exploring the mountains and forests of Vermont. She values living in balance with the natural rhythms of the earth and as an extension of this has come to study herbalism. She is fascinated by the mind-body connection and how it pertains to our sense of health and management of stress. Contact Elise.
Emily Wheeler has a passion for growing, cooking and sharing good food. Her study of herbalism deepens this sharing to the healthful herbs from garden, field and forest. Emily considers healing to be a life-long learning process for herself and her clients, and, as such, finds that working with children is a critical step toward healing people and planet. She has worked with children since 2008 and continues to share her passion for herbs and food with people of all ages through community classes, as a mother’s helper, and by catering for local permaculture courses in the summer. Her intention is to support families and parents-to-be to develop healthy, sustainable, community-based lifestyles that will resonate into future generations. Contact Emily.
