Your Guide: Rachel Sursely was born and raised in the northwest by the waters, mountains, desert, and tall conifer forests and is inspired by all things of earthly magic. She is a graduate of the Wilderness Awareness School’s Anake Outdoor program and mentors the 4-6 year olds in our weekly and monthly programs; this marks her 5th year with VWP. Rachel spends much of her time studying herbalism and is currently enrolled in the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine’s Herbal Immersion Program. She believes passionately that interacting with plants as food and medicine deepens and supports our relationships to the earth, our ancestors, our communities and to our ever changing, whole sacred selves. Rachel lives on Vashon Island with her family, and finds her joy as a mother, forager and medicine maker. She loves learning and teaching others about wild food and the endless gifts that plant world has to offer.
