Who

We are ecological designers, herbalists, conscious tuned in creatures of the natural world within us and beyond.  We are community revivalists, creators of perennial food systems, organic gardeners, bio-regional specialists, builders, do-it-yourself’ers, and lovers of observation of the human-sculpted and natural world. We dig relationships, micro-climates, and relish in asking questions.

 

 

 

Keri Evjy demystifies holistic life design practices through the cultivation of abundant and resilient lives and landscapes.  She travels internationally as a teacher, herbalist, community revitalist and song catcher, she catalyzing a healing relationship of people and planet through collaboration, demonstration, and education.  Keri collaborates with organizations such as the Ashevillage Institute, Shades of Green, Inc, and Dharma Door Retreat Center, emboldening others to curiously lean into nature and vital health will follow.   She teaches youth and adult classes on permaculture, herbal medicine, heralding the weeds, earth song circles, and initiation work with young people.

Keri Co-founded Herban Farmacy, an Herbal CSA, and most recently ran an innovative girl’s summer camp at Dharma Door Retreat Center fostering empowerment, sisterhood, ritual, communication, movement and nature embodiment skills for ages 11-15.  Moving ahead with this project, Keri and co facilitator, Abbi Jaffe, are offering a winter girls camp in 2014.  Self-described as a Community Revitalist, Ecological Designer, Herbalist, Educator, and Songcatcher, Keri is a daughter to the land and thrives in Asheville, North Carolina and sometimes Vermont.  

 
Keri dove into ecological exploration and inquiry in ’04 when she attended her first Permaculture Design Course through Kleiwerks International in El Bolson, Argentina. She formally left the bilingual and outdoor education fields to mentor and advocate for school and community garden education and awareness building the “Adopt a School Garden” program for the National Gardening Association in South Burlington, Vermont.   She graduated from the Sustainable Design Program at Yestermorrow Design/Build School in 2010.


Over the last few years, Keri acquired status as a Certified Clinical Herbalist from the Appalachian School of Holistic Herbalism and graduated from the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine, as well as Energetic Herbalism from the Shanti School.
