Hola! My name is Damiana. I´m a land tender, medicine grower, folk herbalist, storyteller and overall bruja. I was born and raised in Mexico City by a beautiful kind loving family, inheriting the traditions of both my mother´s and father´s mixed lineage.
Since I was very young, I was exposed to different ways of living, as a teenager I began partnering with indigenous communities, learning to connect to a reality where people live in harmony with nature and nourish one another in their every day life. After attempting to be an angry sociologist, I found comfort in the small little container gardens that I got to work with, I was actively formed as a green garden teacher and then I came to California to immerse myself in formal permaculture studies and herb school.
I´ve been living in San Diego for the past 4 years, supporting people on their relationships with nature. Today, I get to co-create with Elderfarm and Wild Willow Farm as an herbalist, kitchen alchemist, teacher, and student. I also tend a plot in a Community Garden and work one-on-one with members of my communities, both in Mexico and the United States.
Thank you so much for being here, now. Lets connect!
