Over 20 years ago, Ginger had an epiphany while working overseas in the environmental movement:  that in order for people to care about protecting the Earth, they had to feel connected to the Earth. She stumbled upon herbalism and knew she had found the path she was looking for, the vehicle for inspiring others as well as for staying connected herself. Ginger counts many herbalists among her teachers,  most especially Michael Moore (1941-2009) of the Southwest School of Botanical Medicine, with whom she studied in 1999, and Sage Mauer of The Gaia School of Healing. Ginger is the founder of Texas Medicinals, the primary teacher of Little Green Witches herbal apprenticeships and camps for young girls, and a practicing herbalist in Austin, TX.
