About the presenter
Alexis Durham is the Lead Herbalist for Herb Pharm, and an instructor for the Herbaculture Internship program. She earned her B.Sc. in Herbal Sciences from Bastyr University and began speaking publicly on botanical medicine while working for the American Botanical Council. An opportunity to learn more from the plants themselves led her to Horizon Herbs, where she fell in love with gardening and seed saving and began teaching medicine making classes. Alexis returned to Bastyr University as Garden Supervisor and directed the Certificate in Holistic Landscape Design program, teaching students to create healing landscapes with medicinal and edible plants. Public speaking engagements include a variety of conferences, community and continuing education events, as well as a Core Faculty position at the Hawthorn Institute. Alexis has also coordinated several educational events including Bastyr University’s Herb and Food Fair, the American Herbalists Guild’s 23rd Annual Symposium, and an upcoming conference benefiting United Plant Savers to be held at Herb Pharm in 2019. She believes that the potential for learning in the garden is infinite, and that the act of caring for plants is almost as healing as the plants themselves.
