Jesse – Intern

Jesse is currently studying to be an Ethnobotanist and is interested in all things plant related, with a staggering 100 indoor plants, we can say she’s somewhat obsessed.

Other than plants, she’s passionate about Indigenous plant knowledge and retaining cultural practices. This passion came about through her study in the Peruvian Amazon on medicinal plants. She found the knowledge base in the local tribes was so vast, and became inspired to contribute to a growing reverence for Indigenous knowledge in Australia and the Pacific.
