ABOUT MADELENE MCCANN Madelene McCann is an herbal practitioner, farmer and founder of Full Moon Folk Medicine. At a young age, she learned from her mother the native and medicinal uses of plants. This kindled a fascination and deep connection with the plant world that has, with the help of teachers and elders, guided her to the teaching and practice of herbal medicine. Madelene has taught herbalism at Humboldt State University, community classes and for environmental education organizations. Through her education initiatives, she hopes to inspire the next generation of plant people. In addition to being an herbalist, Madelene has been a farmer since 2008. She has managed production farms to school gardens and has cultivated a firm belief that food is medicine. Recently, she has blended eastern medicine with her western herbalism roots. She is a graduate of the Ayurveda Clinical Practitioners Program at the dhyana Center in Sebastopol, California. Her craft is inspired by the songs of the plants, rhythms of the seasons and magic of the soil. With her love of teaching, farming and food, she hopes to inspire the reclamation of the human body’s own ability to heal.
