Jessie Belden grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis and spent most of her free time exploring the woodlands, creek, and surrounding hills of the home she grew up in. It wasn’t until a high school environmental science class, that she learned of even the possibility of edible and medicinal flora in her immediate areas, (although she had been eating clover, cedar, and dandelions in secret for as long as she could remember).
Once armed with this knowledge, her passion for plants snowballed. She is now a mother, community herbalist, botanical product creatrix, facilitator, and forever student of the plants in Minneapolis, MN. She has studied with such amazing and inspirational teachers as; Rosemary Gladstar, Kiva Rose, Matthew Wood, Darcy Blue, jim mcdonald, Martin Bulgerin, Dina Goodwill and more! Jessie adores dancing, cuddling her family and friends, singing, roller skating, hiking and adventuring, and of course, being with the plants! She facilitates an accessible and eclectic 6-month herbal apprenticeship in the heart of Minneapolis, and various fun and informative classes and workshops in the surrounding twin cities area.
