Lisa Gilbert

My name is Lisa, I live in New Hampshire and am the mother of two girls. In 2010 I lost my job due to a company acquisition as the Asst. Executive Director for a Senior Living Community. I have two Associates Degrees, Accounting and Computer Technology. Having worked since I was old enough to have a job, this has been quite a journey and transformation for me.

I am not one of those people that was born knowing what it was I wanted to do in life. Honestly it is hard for me to narrow it down. I have so many interests and desires. What do I want to do?

I read something once that made me pause, “If you don’t know where you are going, you will get exactly that… no where.” So I started to write down what things interested me most; things that I would like to pursue and looked at my library to learn more about, well, me.

My library includes wild edibles, herbalism, gardening, hiking, yoga, organic living, equestrian, self sufficiency, positive thinking, and a HUGE collection of cook books!

Since 1999 I have been buying books on herbs and Nature based beliefs. In 2009 I entered a Home-Study course for Herbalism. I have also been a member of WAPF since then. In 2011 I became a member of an on-line herbal study community.

In 2009 I bought a Pentax K 20D camera that I am still learning how to use. Reading the inch thick manual is like reading a foreign language! However, I love photography. I wanted the ability to change lenses and to know what aperture and shuttle speed actually means.

I started an on-line retail business July 2011, where I make natural, organic beauty products. I make my own household products and treat myself and my family with herbal remedies that I make as well. I love learning about Nature, the weeds, herbs, trees, wild edibles, the elements and energies that surround us; living in harmony. I love to cook. I try to incorporate as many spices and herbs as I can for all of their healing properties!

In February 2012 I started the paleo/primal lifestyle. Subscribing to several paleo blogs I realized that people were living a wholesome life but not much was addressed about what Nature could provide to truly live holistically and sustainably.

I decided to create a blog 09/2012, to keep an on-line journal of my journey into thy self and living holistically, sharing my knowledge of herbs and wild edibles, in hopes of helping others keep to their most primal ways.
