Every week we feature a good human from TWIC. This week’s member highlight is Laura Gilmour … she is the Founder of Wild Muskoka (one of our Favourite Things), Forager, and a Kitchen Witch. Laura has always lived a life connected to nature (and when you learn with her, it’s CLEAR that she truly lives in relationship with plants). She is a woman of mixed British, French and Anishinaabe Algonquin ancestry born in the Niagara Region of Canada in a rural farming area. Her family moved to Muskoka, Ontario when she was 11, and Laura fell in love with the area and became fascinated with wild plants as food and as medicine, and began experimenting and learning. After studying Environmental Technology at Fleming College, Laura spent several years learning sustainable agriculture and herbalism, and earned a Permaculture Design Certification. I had the good fortune to take a Wild Plant Medicine course in person with Laura in the Spring, Summer, Fall of 2021 … I was taken with everything I learned, every creation that I purchased from her, but mostly with the energy and gift that she is a teacher.
