Kim, your Village Herbalist, looks forward to helping you and to learning more along the path with you. Her focus is Western Herbalism, which means keeping it simple. While formulas can be blended for your specific needs inside the shop at our natural apothecary, her preference is to teach about, and work with, 'simples' to start (Please come ask her what that means). Her herbal adventures began back in 1994, at Stefan Brown's Great Cape Herbal Apothecary. That shop was an anchor for many years and a passageway into herbalism. Reading herb books and taking classes along the way, she began to teach yoga in the beautiful herb gardens and Stefan's beloved family of gingko trees.
The Little Herb Shoppe will carry Great Cape Apothecary's products too! A big influence was Susan Weed, who authored Kim's first herbal book, Healing Wise. Susan's Wise Woman Ways helped define an herbal foundation which Kim wove into years of healing work, including massage and yoga, and now, as she embarks on a journey of sharing information with you at the Little Herb Shoppe.
She continues to deepen her understanding of the mystery of plants and healing through the books or coursework of several teachers including Juliette de Baraicli-Levi; Susan Weed; Rosemary Gladstar; Keva Rose; K.P. Khalsa; Glen Dupre, Homeopath; and from her dear friend, Eliza, whose latest botanical training was with 7-Song. She'll offer classes, and consultations. The first class will be Kitchen Medicine, offered in mid June.
Eliza Travisano is a community herbalist who has been managing an herbal apothecary on Cape Cod for the last 10 years. She began studying herbs 15 years ago on her own and then began to pursue more formal training. Her main teachers include Pam Hyde-Nakai, Stephan Brown, and 7Song with whom she completed a 500 hour course at the Northeast School of Botanical Medicine in 2008.
For the last 5 years she has recorded a biweekly radio show about herbal medicine for the local radio station. She has taught free herbal classes at various libraries in her community and teaches classes about wild edible and medicinal plants through community adult education programs.
This summer and fall she will be teaching a series of classes on herbal medicine at The Little Herb Shop in Littleton, NH some of which will be co-taught with owner, long time friend and fellow herb teacher Kim Hudson. Using plants for medicine empowers people to take charge of their own health while helping them feel more connected with the natural world. Eliza is grateful for the opportunity to help facilitate this process of empowerment and connection by teaching people about herbal medicine.
