About

Hi! I’m Christina, the gardener and herbalist behind Little River Botanicals. The magic of plants has inspired me to connect and (re)discover the beauty, simplicity and power of medicine making. I studied community herbalism at Pacific Rim College and make potions for my friends and their families. These potions are inspired by my relationship with plants as allies. Recipes are a mix of tradition, intuition and inherited teachings.
As I uncover the many layers of colonialism within myself, the more I change and adapt my relationship with plants and their medicine. I’m passionate about land stewardship and believe in Indigenous sovereignty. I love to wildcraft but am re-evaluating and re-considering the practice of harvesting as an uninvited settler on stolen land. This season I’m committed to harvest with consent and hope to grow a variety of medicinal plants in my garden to minimize my impact on wild plant species. I donate 5% of sales to Raven Trust ~ Respecting Aboriginal Values and Environmental Needs. I believe in the protection of sacred landscapes and the right to fight against violation of these lands and waters. Raven Trust centres Indigenous People’s stories of what’s at stake – for the community and for the environment.
I’m grateful to have you here in the apothecary with me.
