About the Author(s)

Amaia Dadachanji is a practising herbalist at the Wild Apothecary near Stroud, Gloucestershire where she lives with her two young children. She sees patients, teaches herbalism, crafts botanicals, draws, and writes about herbalism and a wilder life. She is also deepening her knowledge of ceremony, grief tending, and land practices through studies and work. Her work Land Is She is centred on connecting women with land and healing through rewilding, intuiting, and tending through folk and flora kinship. Amaia has travelled extensively and learned, with gratitude, alongside herbalists all over the world and hopes to share her knowledge with others through community medicine gardens, ethical foraging, her words, images and voice.

Claudia Manchanda is a grandmother, radical herbalist, bio-scientist and lecturer who has a background in social justice activism, community cooking projects and campaigns against deaths in custody. She lives in London organising radical herb walks, teaching integrated cancer care and advocating for patients.
