Name: Agatha Noveille
Occupation: Author; Herbalist; Associate Educator and Marketing Assistant at the Herbal Academy
Place of Residence: Dalton, Georgia
Background: Agatha grew up in gardens, and under the teaching of her grandparents, she learned how to identify native plants and how to grow fruits, vegetables, flowers, and herbs in miniature Edens that reflected the personalities of their caretakers. It was only natural that she blossomed into a plant-related career, and she is now a writer and herbalist in Dalton, Ga.
Agatha is the founder and director of the Common Branch School, a community herbalism project, and is especially interested in herbal emergency preparedness strategies, community wellness topics, and native and naturalized plants.
She aspires to honor the accessible nature of folk herbalism while drawing on tradition and science to frame an approachable, dynamic vision of herbalism for the future. Her personal blog, The Independent Herbalist, is a lively mix of DIY projects, introspection, and creative inspiration for spirited herbal living.
Her book, Adaptogens: Your Guide to Radiant Health, is a handbook for using herbs to improve mood, energy, and immunity that includes more than 75 unique herbal recipes and elixirs.
Agatha is also thrilled to be part of the team at the Herbal Academy, where she is the marketing assistant and an associate educator.
