Kate (she/her) is a clinical herbalist, flower essence practitioner and creator, Ayurvedic lifestyle consultant and herbal teacher living in the Adirondack Park, NY. She is the founder of Woodland Essence LLC, a forest botanicals and flower essence company she began in 1990 with her husband Don Babineau, after a shared dream directed the couple to create essences from the tree, shrub and forest floor flowers of the Northeast woodlands. As a teacher and NY State guide, Kate brings her love of the trees, wild places, song and healing to the workshops she presents. Her life work has been to bring people and plants together. She dreams of the time when she can write about the woodlands she loves so well. For now, Kate joyfully shares her songs on her first CD- “Songs of Prayer & Celebration of Life” which is available on the woodland essence website. A second CD is in the works!
