A native of Fairfield, CT, Hayden graduated from Cornell University with a Bachelors of Science in Science of Natural and Environmental Systems and earned his Masters of Science from Schumacher College in England in Sustainable Horticulture and Food Production. He has shadowed ethnobotanist Marc Williams (Director of botanyeveryday.com and Plants and Healers International, and editor of Botany in a Day) in Asheville, NC, taught about edible and medicinal plants and mushrooms up and down the eastern seaboard, and completed the full-time clinical herbalism program at the Eclectic School of Herbal Medicine.
Hayden has been fortunate to be able to study around the world. He traveled to India, Tanzania, New Zealand, Mexico with a program called Rethinking Globalization, taught Human Ecology and Sustainable Food Systems at The Island School in The Bahamas, biked across Europe using ancient trees as my way points, and traveled to Bhutan with the Gross National Happiness Centre. He has spent the last few years getting to know the US a bit better.
