How can we provide for human needs while regenerating a thriving ecology?
Hayden's Harvest offers public and private workshops, herbal consultations, botanical surveys for properties, and foraging, botany, mycology classes for all ages, and a plant and fungi stewardship mentorship. Contact us if you are interested in any of these services.
Hayden's Harvest Founder Hayden Stebbins 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. He has completed the full-time clinical herbalism program at the Eclectic School of Herbal Medicine. He manages a small regenerative agriculture project in Brooktondale, New York exploring how food and medicine production can regenerate degraded land dominated by introduced species.
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 his way points, and traveled to Bhutan with the Gross National Happiness Centre.
