About

Driftless Wild provides quality plant education in the Dubuque and Galena area. Plant Walks, Plant Talks, Herb Camps and Workshops in Herbalism, Garden Design, including Permaculture, and Natural Arts and Crafts, move along at a fun pace with an excellent fun to lecture ratio (because who wants to sit and listen for THAT long, right?!). Adults and children alike can learn the herb lore of Traditional Western, Ayurvedic and native Midwestern plants to help our bodies maintain balance and wellness.

Hello there! I am Tamara Ambroz, Clinical Herbalist. I have studied herbalism for over a decade with heavy emphasis on our local, indigenous plants and the medicinal and nutritional benefits they provide. I am former student of Lola Stonehill, Clinical Herbalist of Madison, WI and presently  seeking advanced study with David Winston, RH, AHG. It is important to me to have a close connection with nature. Drawing from Traditional Western Herbalism and Ayurveda, I use a diverse working knowledge of many plants to help balance bodies and minds. I enjoy growing, harvesting and preparing herbs for use. Local medicine is powerful medicine. I offer herbal consultations, custom formulations and a variety of products to help you in your wellness journey.

I am located in Galena, IL and am available to teach throughout the Driftless. I also offer virtual herbal consultations from the comfort of your home.

Ok, that sounds all markety and highly google searchable…So,who am I really?
