Urban Nettle & Katharine
Part crazy brew of her homesteading skills that at one time manifested themselves as an urbanized ruralite and part endearing love for a little plant known as the stinging nettle. Urban Nettle was born as Katharine canned like a mad woman, had her urban garden and carried on for several years a city slicker till she inevitably realized soil embedded fingernails, vast open skies and her community of plants, animals and family outside the city were non negotiable.
Now a full time ruralite with her husband, dog and 15 chickens Katharine still retains her urban community but calls their prairie farmstead home. Herbalist, forager and perennial plant wrangler Katharine believes we all have the tools to realign ourselves with our true inner health.
The theme at Urban Nettle is “Rooted in Nature…a commitment to ourselves.” Katharine explains “We can heal. We will heal. We just have to stop, listen and be open. Our bodies inevitably will know what we need.”
