Nikki Hill is a plant lover who can be found chasing wildflowers throughout the western US. She is not sure when her adoration of plants began, but they share a kindred spirit.
Nikki earned a bachelors degree in environmental science and botany. This led her to the field of habitat restoration nearly 16 years ago. Disillusioned by methodology that focused on eradication, she struck off on her own.
She spent six years growing food and medicine, first as an urban farmer and then as a nomadic rural farmer, and co-founded Daggawalla, a seed and herb company.
Since 2014, she has been exploring her feral roots as a wildtender, planting gardens outside agricultural boundaries.
Her hope is to foster habitat resilience by sowing a living seed bank for the future, in a spirit of collaboration with the non-human world
