Natalie Dechiara started out foraging in her mother’s garden at the ripe age of three and hasn’t slowed down since! The overwhelming sense of belonging she finds when immersed in nature is something magical that she hopes to share with all. Natalie has a deep appreciation for mushrooms and enjoys growing them in addition to finding them hidden like treasure amongst the trees. As a concocter of wild ferments, elixirs, tinctures and treats, she finds great inspiration in our Appalachian flora.
Natalie has been “going wild” with No Taste Like Home since 2016. She is a member of the North American Mycological Association & Asheville Mushroom club. She is currently undertaking her Permaculture Design Certificate with the Permaculture Woman’s Guild.
