Ep. 5: How well do you know the plants in your lfie? - with Jocelyn Perez-Blanco

Meet Jocelyn Perez-Blanco, educator, herbalist, urban naturalist, conservationist, flower essence therapist – and much more. Jocelyn lives in New York, and her mission is to bring knowledge about plants and our connection to nature to communities in an accessible way. She offers outdoor activities, workshops, and webinars, whenever she isn’t tending to her ever-growing collection of houseplants and -animals.

“Firstly, folks need to recognize that we are nature. It’s not “us” and “nature”, we ARE nature.” - Jocelyn Perez-Blanco
