Earth Speak with Natalie Ross and Friends

Sep 5, 2019

Damiana, an herbalist on a community farm in San Diego, shares her story as a first-generation immigrant from Mexico City who left her job in the government to pursue the plant medicine path. Damiana also takes us deep into her experience walking the pilgrimage trail, Camino de Santiago, in Spain while facing her PTSD that is the aftermath of being held hostage by a gunman in rural Mexico.

This episode is also a video with amazing footage from our visit to the Farm and Damiana's pilgrimage in Spain.
