Welcome!

I'm Justine- herbalist, educator, entrepreneur, dog mom & perfectly imperfect human being! I am devoted to personal & collective well being through health empowerment, community & connection to nature. Healer's Harvest is a manifestation of my personal healing path, spirituality & professional endeavors after more than a decade of working with people & plants. Herbalism keeps me humbled & evermore curious & in awe of the intelligence imbued in all living beings, in this way it has been true north on my spiritual path.

In 2011, my plant path began when I set off traveling with the goal of seeing the world, connecting deeply with nature & learning to be more self reliant. I volunteered & worked on a variety of farms including the Herb Pharm, a production herb farm in southern Oregon; Waiheke Valley Permaculture Farm in New Zealand; Kealaola Lettuce Farm in Hawaii; Pacific Quest, a horticultural therapy program for teens & young adults & Elliot Farm, a vegetable farm in Lakeville, MA. Throughout my travels & work on farms I experienced many moments of genuine awe, gratitude, inspiration & YES!!!'s. I knew in those moments that my relationship with plants & nature was just beginning.

 

Since then, I have worked as a fine gardener & in apothecaries including Farmacy Herbs in Providence, RI & The Little Herb Shop in Littleton, NH. I have acquired five certificates in herbalism & counting, qualifying me to practice clinically in advising the public on how to use plants for healing purposes.

In 2021, I founded Healer's Harvest & successfully launched The Herbalist's Collaborative, an online and interactive program that bridges the gap between a student’s herbal certification and their career as a skilled community herbalist. We are a group of herbalists who work together on client case studies in order to advance our clinical skills, develop our herbal careers & deepen our relationships with medicinal plants.

 

Healer's Harvest also offers plant walks & herbal consultations to educate our community on the healing benefits of native plants & how to use them. We create small batch organic herbal products & custom blends that are inspired by the cycles of nature & designed to encourage a strong connection to the natural world.
