Over the past few decades, John J. Slattery’s mission has been stewardship of local plant knowledge, supporting the dynamic heritage of traditional herbal practice in the Sonoran desert region, and exploring healing through ancestral heritage. His work is a reflection of years of direct relationship with the wild plants of the American Southwest and northern Mexico, traditional knowledge shared with him by indigenous elders and healers, clinical training in herbalism and nutrition, ancestral skills, and a deep desire to reconnect people to Nature. John offers experiential educational opportunities through his annual Bioregional Herbalist Apprenticeship, and Foraging in the Sonoran Desert course. John is the owner of local businesses, including Desert Tortoise Botanicals and Desert Forager.
