Sara Ross BIO 2020
I am a Burnaby-based mother, cyclist, explorer, maker, care-taker of land, harvester & gleaner of wild plants, land defender. I love birds and bird language, and love the thrill of catching sight of a hunting cooper’s hawk on the wing! I am a former Lead Instructor at Soaring Eagle Nature School, and have worked, studied, and practiced with nature-connection & birds on this land for 20+ years.
I identify as part of the Scottish Diaspora, and work consciously to be a worthy guest on unceeded Coast Salish territories. I am consciously exploring my ancestral connections through hand-skills such as spinning, weaving, and plant dyes. I run a micro-business called Land Connection Medicine which features super-local & limited-edition plant medicine tinctures and other plant-based products.
