Scotty is a Permaculture landscaper and youth nature connection mentor by trade. Scotty began studying permaculture, herbalism, wild foods, and primitive skills in 2008 and never looked back. He formally studied Permaculture with the Living Routes Program in Massachusetts in 2009 and Herbal Medicine locally at the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine in 2011 and continues to learn everyday. Each year he seeks to broaden his horizons and biodiversify his diet by growing and wildcrafting new foods and herbs and learning to identify and use different local plants. By connecting to the source of his food and medicine and getting to know the local flora and fauna, Scotty finds a great and satisfying connection to the Earth.
