Niniann is an Herbalist, Herb Grower, Herb Seedling Grower, Herbal Educator/Speaker, and Herb Conservationist. Besides growing and selling herbs at her nursery, she has two acres of display and teaching gardens. She is a member of United Plant Savers and has been working on establishing a native plant sanctuary for native wild herbs that are on the United Plant Savers “At Risk” and “To Watch” lists. These are native herbs that are in danger because of development of their habitats, and also due to overharvesting. Visitors to Evenmore can see these plants in our woodland sanctuary and learn about them.
Bio: Niniann has been growing and using herbs all her adult life. Her love of plants was instilled in her by her grandmother as a child. All her knowledge gardening, herbs, medicine making, and landscaping with herbs and native plants has been self taught. She likes to say that crawling around on her hands and knees in the garden for over fifty years has taught her the most valuable lessons. Passionate about gardening and saving our native herbs, she teaches free classes and takes on one apprentice every year. You will often find her teaching at various pagan events around NH. She considers it part of her spiritual life to get others interested in herbs, saving native plants, and teaching children to respect and appreciate nature.
