This is the first post in a series to introduce our Board of Directors to our members, and share a little more about them!
Lucretia Jones, Wise Woman Herbalist, 200HR YTT
How long have you been a member of HWB? How else are you involved?
I joined HWB in 2015, and joined the BOD in 2018. I was HWB DC Coordinator for several years as well!
What drew you to HWB as a member and board member?
I became a member and joined the board to assist with the mission of keeping herbal medicine people's medicine. Helping those in need with the abundance of plants is close to my heart and part of my personal purpose.
Tell us a little more about you!
I've been working and learning with plants for over twenty years and was first introduced to the wise woman tradition while living an artist’s life in New York City. My father had passed away three days prior to the World Trade Center collapse in 2001, and that uncertainty sent me on a quest to find more autonomy and connection with the natural world. It was at this time that I found a love for connecting people with plants. As a wise woman herbalist, my favorite times are spent meeting new and old plant friends wherever I happen to be. Sharing those relationships with other humans led me to create House of Lukaya in 2003. House of Lukaya, is a mobile and online source for plant medicine workshops, incense twists and other handicrafts, and a pocket Guide to Nourishing Herbal Infusions. In 2019, my partner and I purchased land in Virginia where we are building a homestead from scratch and creating space to share herbs and arts with others.
Keep up with the latest!
