Larken Bunce is a photographer in Middlesex, Vermont.
"I am a clinical herbalist, educator, gardener, writer, and photographer deeply inspired by a life-long love affair with plants. Since 1994, I’ve studied traditional views of health and nature in tandem with scientific understandings of plants and people, exploring our innate tendency towards health and the profound impact of synchronizing our lives with the rhythms of the natural world. My practice and teaching draw wisdom from various systems of body, mind and spirit-centered healing, including Western herbal medicine, classical Chinese medicine, aromatherapy, flower essence therapy, mind-body and somatic techniques, and whole foods nutrition. My work is rooted in the premise that the heart of healing lies in remembering that we belong to each other and to the land. In all I do, I hope to increase awareness of the capacity of not only medicinal plants, but of all nature and wildness, to sustain and heal."
