About Phoebe Violet: Phoebe Violet Greenberg fell in love with plants and herbal medicine 8 years ago while living on a mountain in New Mexico. She then went on to apprentice and help run the apothecary, Flower Power Herbs and Roots, in NYC, under the loving leadership of Lata Kennedy. She has learned from many books, many teachers, but continues to draw the most inspiration from the Wise Woman tradition, and learning from the plants directly through everyday use, and hands-on communion. Phoebe is also a farmer at the historic Queens County Farm Museum, where she has been helping grow and harvest an abundance of herbs, veggies, and flowers for the past three seasons.
About Colin Wright: Colin Wright is an environmental organizer and educator with a background in water quality, wind energy, community farming, and herbal medicine. Colin studied renewable resource management at Yukon College in northwest Canada. As an Environment Officer for Kluane First Nation—an autonomous indigenous community in the region—he learned how to farm in the northern climate of Canada from village elders, developed a wind energy program, and worked to protect heritage lands. He later researched the effect of melting permafrost on Northern infrastructure with the Yukon Research Centre. Colin has completed an apprenticeship in herbalism, and studied under the prominent herbalist and author Robin Rose Bennett.
