Connecting with plants since 1962, Patti was born and raised in Michigan.  As a child, she enjoyed most of her time outdoors not realizing that she would be able to grow up and play with plants all day.  It wasn’t until becoming a mother and attending Michigan State University to study horticulture that she realized the importance of our local food and plant medicine systems. Eating nutrient rich and organic foods benefited not only us as humans, but how the practice of organic and regenerative farming really helped all living creatures, the soil under our feet, the air we breathe, the water we drink, the whole planet.  Heartwood Forest Farm is the second USDA certified organic farm that Patti has started and operated.   A home herbalist, organic farmer, wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, friend, mentor, but mostly, a steward of the land while organically growing culinary and medicinal plants.
