Lisa is passionate about all of us having information, tools and resources in our own hands to make empowered decisions, and in exploring what health really means together in the broadest sense of the word - emotionally, physically, spiritually, socially and politically. She's been weaving that interest through workshops and information exchanges in all sorts of community settings and also into a book about feminist health. She's especially interested in reintegrating the use of plant medicine with bodywork and other traditional medicine practices, and in deconstructing some of the stories we are offered about our bodies and ourselves by bio-medicine. She is part of the Radical Herbalism Gathering: radicalherbalism.org.uk and the Radical Bodywork Network: facebook.com/groups/radicalbodywork.

She is currently initiating a community apothecary project in Walthamstow - Community Herbal Hands - which seeks to develop networks of medicinal plant cultivation, harvesting, preparing, knowledge-sharing and use for health and well being support in our neighbourhoods.
