Lori Snyder is an Indigenous Herbalist and Educator with a deep knowledge of medicinal and edible plants that grow in the most common and everyday spaces. Through Lori’s eyes, our immediate surroundings take on a new life and offer a wealth of untapped nutritional resources. In a time when our connection to the land on which we live grows ever more tenuous, Lori offers us an opportunity to reconnect and leads us to tap into the wisdom of ancestral relations who, for thousands of years, were nourished by this land and cared deeply for its fate.
