Lorna Trigg - Herbal Walk / Clay goddess sculpture / Kava & Fire Ceremony
* Herbalist * Artist * I was born in South Africa and immigrated to the USA in 1988. My study and use of Herbal and Medicinal plants has been a life long journey, beginning with my grandmother and the local indigenous people of my home country. I learnt to recognize and use medicinal plants in the field from the boy children on the African farms, who know what to use when and as needed while spending days out on the Veld with the cattle. My grandmother taught me the way to cook with healing herbs, and how to create salves, syrups and teas for herbal health.
I have been gifted with numerous teachers, Rosemary Gladstar, Susun Weed, Rosalee Floret, Mathew Wood, D,coda, Steven Foster, and the observation of the land.
On immigrating to the USA, I immersed myself in the native and medicinal plants of the area, learning to plant, and harvest for culinary and medicinal use.
I now live in Carroll County, a short distance from downtown Eureka Springs, Arkansas, where I have been involved for the last 20 years in restoring a fifteen acre property back to native and medicinal plants. This endeavor is for the purpose of helping others in recognizing plants habitats and cycles. When to harvest and how to use, what I term “Backyard Medicinal’s” , the plants that grow in our respective areas are the ones we want to know and use.
