Semilla Botanica

Semilla Botanica

The UC Berkeley Anthropology Department is, it turns out, a phenomenal place for the start of a lifelong friendship. Erica and Kristen met when they were both rounding out their years at Cal, squeaking and eking their way through theses projects in the hallways of Kroeber – and in the years since they’ve worked together on a farm in Sonoma, and now in a joint collaboration of botanical prints. Born & raised in the mountains & foothills in the Sierra Nevada, Kristen was naturally immersed in the plant world growing up, from the ancient presence of giant sequoias, the tenacious plants that sprung from dramatic heights of granite rock faces, to the freewheeling spirit of the wildflowers of the Sierra. SEMILLA was born as a project harkening back to my origin, the SEED of what drew her into the practice of herbal medicine and the growing process of learning to use the plants that grew around her to cure everyday ailments. We are jazzed to be working together again.
