Naneh Israelyan is a gardener and herbalist based in Brooklyn.
After struggling with the Western Model of Health, she pursued alternative models of care, inspired by the healers of her Armenian heritage.
While working with ethnobotanists and healers, she was fortunate enough to experience and learn the efficacy of healing with plants. It is her goal to rewrite the narrative around herbal medicine, so consumers can experience the value and necessity of the plant kingdom in the pursuit of long-term health and well-being.
Pioneer species are the first to colonize previously devastated ecosystems in order to begin the process of ecological remediation. In deference to these vital life forms, Pioneer Flora's credo is to repair, restore and strengthen the body while remaining protean, humble, and in service of plant intelligence.
