I’m an Author, photographer, animal and nature-lover and bonafide tree-hugger – the wilderness is the perfect environment to satisfy my soul. It gives me inspiration to bring the products to life to help others reconnect with Nature. I write fantasy, non-fiction and use my art and photography to create products for our online store.
American Ginseng and the habitat that supports this endangered plant is one of my avid interests. Most of my non-fiction is devoted to this topic and I encourage anyone with the right kind of land to help protect and re-establish habitat. This is my goal for our property even though we still intend to harvest and sell our roots eventually. With proper planning, planting and ethical harvesting, it will thrive for generations to come.
I’m the voice behind our social media and website.
