Christina, founder of Every Leaf Speaks is a clinical bio-regional herbalist, trained in field botany and ecology, environmentalist, wild-tender, trained wildcrafter. Her love of the plants began when she moved to Joshua Tree and wanting to learn about the flora within her region and reconnect to the flora that her ancestors worked with.
Having studied botany and clinical herbalism at Columbines School of Botanical Studies, Traditional Western Herbalism at Green Wisdom Herbal Studies and the Wise Woman Tradition and Plant Spirit Medicine at Gaia School of Earth Healing.
Christina's love of the plants has lead her to sharing the wisdom of the flora and the land. Offering hands-on herbalism workshops, Plant ID hikes, land consultations and herbal consultations.
She also crafts small batch botanical remedies with flora of the Mojave, Sonoran Desert and recently expanding to flora of the Pacific North West. Her primary focus however is tending the land, the importance of LEAVE NO TRACE and why we should all be caretakers. Tending the land brings a deeper connection and appreciation.
