Bio

Karen Lawton is one of the Seed Sistas alongside Fiona Heckles. 

 

The Seed Sistas strive to educate about plant medicines with their own uniquely vibrant style. 

  

They are published authors, public speakers, medical herbalists and eco-activists.  Allowing the plants to guide them to ever more ridiculous productions, they pass on knowledge about how to learn about the plants that grow around you and to empower yourself to use them as simple remedies in the home. 

 

The Seed Sistas run a community interest company, Sensory Solutions Herbal Evolution, that focusses on planting and supporting community herb gardens and creating empowered, resilient communities that care for their local green spaces.   

  

As we get more intimate with plants, we naturally want to protect them more ferociously. The time has come to wake up, reclaim our birthrights, and access more knowledge about the the foods and medicines in local plants, trees and fungi.
