Evelyn is a farmer, florist, herbalist, and all around plant enthusiast. Raised in swampy South Florida, she witnessed the abundant life a subtropic environment supports. The shape, color, and tenderness of regional flowers drew her in, feeding her curiosities of natural spaces. This lead to her introduction to the intricacies of interdependence on Earth in plant and human communities.
Evelyn went on to study Agriculture and Community Development at The Evergreen State College. Here, she began examining the current state of local and global food systems. In shock, she began researching, engaging, and supporting justice movements.
Seeking to greater understand the relationship we all have with each other and this planet, she continued on the path of cultivation. After working at farms in WA, CA, NY, FL, she has settled in Detroit where she grows food, makes medicine, and forages for flowers.
