Allie Showalter

Allie has been interpreting the marvelous bounty and beauty of the Earth for children and adults alike for over a decade.  Her journey into the heart of the wild began in childhood and her path has meandered through the realms of herbalism, permaculture, nutrition, and traditional life ways and, of course, the fine art of foraging.  Allie has honed and shared her knowledge working for Useful Plants Nursery, Evergreen Community Charter School and Wild Abundance, and currently teaches for both Forest Floor Wilderness Programs and Muddy Sneakers.

Allie is a child at heart who loves to practice ancient crafts, grow food, tell stories, sing and roam with curiosity in her beloved Southern Appalachian home.
