Instructor Nicole Lobue is a chef, herbalist, and educator. Nicole’s work has linked food, wellness, service and education in various collaborations, organizations, and in her own private practice. She is a co-founderof Wild Gather, an herbalism school in the Hudson Valley, a co-founder of Kite’s Nest, an alternative learning center for young people in Hudson, NY. She is also the Culinary Arts Director of the Alimentary Kitchen in Hudson, where she facilitates workshops and experiences that offer a supportive environment for children and teenagers to pursue and develop a relationship to herbalism, wellness, self care, food access and food justice. Across her work — in her herbalism practice, in the kitchen, or in the classroom — Nicole creates spaces that foster critical inquiry and systems-thinking, connection to plants and to the natural world, and that speak to the intersections between political, personal, and ecological well-being.
This program is part of the Hudson Area Library’s ongoing collaboration with the City of Hudson Senior Center and the City of Hudson Youth Department.
