Born and raised on Lopez Island, Callie spent her formative years living a nature-based lifestyle in the Pacific Northwest. Her love of the outdoors and relationship with sacred plant medicine led her to open Pachamama Apothecary in the spring of 2016. Shortly after the shop opened, Callie was blessed with the opportunity to spend 72 days living alone in the foothills of the Andes Mountains in Patagonia, Argentina. She fished, foraged and relied completely on the land for survival. Her journey can be viewed on Season 3 of ALONE, on the History Channel.
Callie currently lives off grid in a small cabin in the mossy woods, gathering wild medicine, writing songs, and planning her next adventure. Follow her on --> Instagram.

Milla grew up in the wilds of Finland, just a few hundred miles South of the Arctic Circle. A small town girl, she spent much of her childhood in the woods, learning from a young age the ordinary magic of gathering wild foods and making your own fun. The challenge of transferring her plant knowledge to a new, and different bio-region, has been the inspiration for her current work in bringing together folk herbalism, Earth activism, ancestral knowledge and discovery, rewilding, mythology, and creating local resilience, and culture. Learning the patterns, meanings, and language of a new natural environment has connected her with amazing teachers, fellow herbalists, witches, and nature-lovers.

Eleanor grew up playing in the pine woods in sultry South Carolina. Now, a decade into life on the West Coast, she calls yarrow, nettle, nootka rose, salal, cedar, and alder her allies. Her first herbal love will always be coastal wild yarrow. She credits pregnancy and birth with steering her towards herbal medicine, and Nan Koehler, Susun Weed and Aviva Romm's books were staples in her early mothering days.
