“Find your place on the planet. Dig in, and take responsibility from there.” – Gary Snyder

Hall Newbegin, Chief Wilderness Perfumer and Founder at Juniper Ridge, will guide us on this morning stroll from downtown Nevada City’s lovely business, Kitkitdizzi, to the Deer Creek Tribute Trail for a workshop in wild-crafting.

“I always think of myself as an accidental perfumer. I grew up in Portland, Oregon and spent my summers hiking and backpacking around the lakes and peaks of the Cascade Mountains. Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson, the Three Sisters… those names bring a kind of magic into the room for me, and that’s what my perfume is all about. If I can bottle a summer day on Mt. Hood’s Timberline Trail when the wildflowers are peaking, well, that’s just the most beautiful thing ever,” said Hall.

For this workshop, participants will take a walk from the store to the Deer Creek natural area to learn about sustainable harvesting and perhaps take a quick swim “to reset our heads and feel all good, smell the dirt, plants, really dig into place.” Then folks will head back to Hall’s Field Lab Van to make and bottle a hydrosol extraction. “You’ll go home with the Deer Creek area in a bottle.”
