As of 2021, I am still in the development of this site after a LONG year doing my other work as a LMCH in WA state. I absolutely love both of my passions, being a counselor and a botanist, but my clients needed me a bit more than the plants this year. However, its March 2021 and the plants are out! Its time to make a new beginning…
Hidden Lakes, 2019
I have been learning about and from plants of the PNW since 1999. My first degree is in Ethnobotany Stewardship Education and I have been teaching wild plant classes since 2006 for Wilderness Awareness School and my business Lady Botanica. My passion for plants has led me in many directions as an arborists/horticulturalist, landscaper, permaculturalist, organic farmer and gardener, wild plant forager, medicine maker and plant technologist, survival skills instructor, plant biology/chemistry dork, paleobotany enthusiast and aspiring elder plant ID expert…AKA PLANTDORK!
If you are new to plants or being in the wild places, you have come to the right place! If you are an old plantdork like me, with respect, I invite you to join us because you know as well as I do, we can NEVER stop learning about plants! I have been studying, teaching, foraging, and connecting with plants in the PNW since 1999. This is my home and teaching deep, long term relationships with the plants here is a foundational passion and commitment.
My commitment is to help connect you to wild botanical worlds in a way that alivens, educates and expands you!
Please go to my classes page to see what is upcoming or contact me a firstname.lastname@example.org for a contract program.
I would like to acknowledge that I am living and working on traditional territories of the Snoqualmie Tribe, Tulalip Tribes, Upper Skagit Tribe, Confederation of the Colville Tribes, Confederate Tribes and Bands of the Yakima Nation and Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe. I pay my respects to them and their Elders of the past and present. I will do my absolute best to respect these Peoples and not appropriate cultural practices or teach about their uses of plants as an absolute authority. When possible, available, I will form (and have) relationships with respect with local tribes whom lands I visit with my programs. I will respect all laws, requests, boundaries and teachings offered from these Sovereign Nations.
Yours From the Green,
Lindsay Letitia Huettman
