Main sources and words of Gratitude

I’m tremendously thankful for the sources of inspiration and learnings that I have access to. In addition to nature itself, my main mentors are Deb Soule, David Crow and Learning Herbs.

I’m also deeply grateful for the local knowledge and inspiration that exists around me, such as Parvathy Nagarajan and Sri Siddha Forest Medicine, Dr Berengere and Pitchandikulam, Elumalai in Kuilapalayam, UmaRamanan and AuroOrchard where I did my first wild edible plant walks, Nina Sengupta, Shivaraj at Martuvam Healing Forest, Lorenzo at The Food Laboratory in Auroville who further opened my mind, Krishna McKenzie at Solitude Farm where I got my initial spark, Stuart Muir Wilson in Australia who open heartedly let me in to his life and travels, Sahainan in northern Thailand where I got my permaculture design certificate, and Nils Johansson who I unashamedly can try my thoughts and ideas on.

And of course, one of my bibles and early sources of excitement, “One-straw Revolution” by Masanobu Fukuoka.

Thank you for the knowledge that you have gathered and for enlightening me about the spirits and healing qualities of plants and the world that we are so beautifully interwoven with.
