Welcome to The Medicine Circle! My name is Tara, and I am the creator behind this Seasonal & Medicinal Food Project. Through the exploration of Beauty, focused on creating food with foraged and local ingredients, I hope to inspire people to connect more deeply with the natural world; from the "weeds" in your backyard to flowers that we all love.
I teach courses on foraging food, kitchen herbalism & plant remedies, and seasonal & medicinal foods. I create monthly recipe eBooks that reflect the seasons, free of gluten, dairy and refined-sugar.
Food is a medium that connects us all, from seed to plate, and growing to gathering.
I cultivate relationship to the land I tend, and listen to the stories it carries. I live and work on the unceded land of the Arapahoe, Cheyenne, and Ute Nations in Colorado.
I work with foraged and homegrown plants when creating recipes for books and courses, whether I am home in Colorado or working abroad for courses and retreats. My intention is that we find our connection with the natural world and continue to tend the Earth with reverence. Thank you so much for being here!

....to say Tara is a good cook would be an insult to what she actually is. She's The Cook. She's the one having tea with the spirits before every meal planned, always listening to exactly what the group needs to be truly nourished. Her food alchemically fused with our entire retreat. I think everyone would call it magical. Get her to cater to yours...You won't regret it.

Tara brings amazing creativity, love, and intention to everything she cooks. I have been lucky to have been a part of workshops were she has served beautiful works of art as nourishing meals. Her process and the depth of relationship with the food she cooks and the land in which its grown is inspiring.
Tara weaves and infuses her love and creativity into the food she creates in such a magical way. She grows the food with her family and I could taste the blessings. Eating her food was such a magical experience, the presentation was so beautiful and the food so delicious. Thank you, Tara, every bite felt like an offering of love and connection to the earth.
Tara is a truly gifted artist, visionary and alchemist. Her inspired creations evoke an ancient medicine that is felt deep within the bones. Whether it’s one of her paintings or a feast that she has lovingly prepared, Tara invites us to remember who we are in a most beautiful way.
