Lily founded the central Ohio chapter of Herbalists Without Borders, started the non-profit Sassafras Ohio, is the solidarity and mutual aid coordinator for Haven Herbs. She has worked for equal rights, environmental justice, union drives, and more through Queer Nation, ACT UP, Pynk Panthers and SF Street Patrol, Greenpeace, the IWW, and the UFW.
In 2020, Lily moved to a farm and is building a place that restores native biodiversity, grows food and medicine, raises pastured livestock, and teaches sustainable folkways. Make/Do Farm is a place to learn about herbalism, DIY, and sustainability. Get products from the farm and read about her adventures on the farm blog!
