Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine's Social Links

Juliet Blankespoor

Hi there, Rosebay!
I'm Juliet, the herbalist behind this account.

I founded the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine in 2007 and serve as the school’s primary instructor and Creative Director. I've been a professional plant-human matchmaker for close to three decades.  I caught the plant bug when I was nineteen and went on to earn a degree in Botany.  I’ve owned just about every type of herbal business you can imagine: an herbal nursery, a medicinal products business, a clinical practice, and now, an herbal school.

These days, I channel my botanical obsession with my writing and photography in my online programs and my personal blog, Castanea. I'm writing my first book: Cultivating Medicinal Herbs: Grow, Harvest, and Prepare Handcrafted Remedies from Your Home Garden. My houseplants and I share a home with my family and herb books in Asheville, North Carolina.
