Claire loves beautiful things, like the changing of seasons, wildflowers, and the ocean. Because of this love, she began a farming internship in 2013 at the Green String Institute. There she learned how to be in communication with the plants, the soil, and the cycles of life. In 2014 She began farming full time at Cannard Farm. Her passion for nature is shown by her drive to be a steward to the earth by re-building our soils and by listening carefully to what the plants are sharing with us.
With a deep feeling of connection to the Earth, Claire wanted to learn about the world of medicinal plants. In 2016, she began the Roots of Herbalism program at The California School of Herbal Studies. From there, she completed the Ayurvedic Clinical Foundations program at the dhyana Center where she learned everything from pulse diagnostics to how to give a Pancha Karma. Claire recently graduated from the incredible WISE I and WISE II programs of One Willow Apothecaries, where she found a whole new depth of purpose and soul family.
Claire is currently an apprentice of the amazing Stargazer Li, where she is learning everything from ancient ways of keeping time, to how to be an everyday wizard. She is also a part of the teaching staff at the California School of Herbal Studies.
