Caroline de Robillard

co founder

On a journey of self-healing came the strengthing of my love for mother Earth and all her beings. This love deepened when I myself became a mother. Earth Forest has a special place in my heart, as to me, it represents the co-creative union of Evert and I. Along joined many beings, and so, I perceive Earth Forest as “Sangha” – community. Khalil Gibran says “work is love made visible”. May our love nurture you with nourshing food, supportive presence and creative inspiration.

With love,

managing director/partner

I was raised with spices! My mom learnt and shared the wisdom of ayurveda with me, it was passed down to her by her grandmother who was an Indian medicine woman (all Indian woman knew ayurvedic medicine back then!) I am determined to continue teaching this wisdom to my children, to my friends, and to as many people as i can reach! The knowledge of spices and herbs has saved my life, and with it I have saved, eased and nurtured life all around me, wherever I’ve travelled. It is a precious gift to be able to heal one’s self and others. One that should be given to anyone who seeks it as part of my quest I aim to spread the seeds of all the medicine plants and harvest my own spices….and to encourage others to do the same. Imagine a world where food and medicine where the same thing? And EVERYONE grew what they could manage and shared….so there would always be abundance. It starts with a seed….I believe Earth Forest is that seed.

Sharing is caring
