About Justine

Justine organises foraging guided tours where she teaches how to identify, harvest and embrace wild plants with a sustainable approach.

As a trained herbalist, she aims to help you understand the impact of plants on your physical and mental health, but also their role into the local biodiversity. Ecology, as we know, is a priority.  She teaches wildcrafting & wild cooking workshops.

To create her herbal medicine, she uses locally foraged plants, wildcrafting methods and distillation.  She hopes to inspire people to respect the ground by getting to know it better.
