community health through herbalism from Nicole Telkes and the Wildflower School of Botanical Medicine
Nicole Telkes, Founder & Director of the Wildflower School of Botanical Medicine, started her line of Wild Spirit formulas in 2001, the same time she started teaching a herbal education apprenticeship series. The apothecary & products have evolved as has her teaching. Nicole now is the founder and Director of the Wildflower School of Botanical Medicine and has authored the book the Medicinal Plants of Texas. She is a Registered Herbalist, Licensed Massage Therapist and Natural Wellness Pracitioner. In 2014, after moving her family and school to some land, she started gardens and a botanical sanctuary. In 2015 she began offering shares in the apothecary through what is called Community Supported Herbalism, (CSH). Many of the plants used in these formulas come from the gardens and botanical sanctuary Nicole lives and works on outside of Austin. She is committed to using natural and organic methods in her gardening and ethical and sustainable weedcrafting and wildcrafting.
