One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Working with Native American Tribal Groups and united states government to restore balance to the land through place based traditional knowledge stewardship 🌿
More and more tribes are getting the land that was stolen from them back, and I love it!

Teach, Learn, Share

I am always happy to help with gardening 🌿 and with housework 🧹

I can teach you about making herbal botanicals and share my knowledge of plants.

I would like to learn new recipes.

Who has a biodigester and uses biogas fuel for their stovetop cooking and to power the lights?... I wonder
