Community Herbalist | Plant Medicines | Womb Wellness

Arvolyn Hill (she/her) is a community herbalist, flower essence practitioner and outdoor educator with a never-ending curiosity about plants and the natural world. Raised on Schaghticoke land of rural Kent, CT, her love of herbalism grew after the passing of several family members due to preventable environmental illnesses. She studied at Twin Star Connecticut's School of Herbalism and Energetic Studies and in 2016 opened Gold Feather, an online apothecary and pressed flower art shop. Arvolyn is passionate about reclaiming herbalism for Black, Indigenous and People of Color by using herbs to build ancestral connection.

She’s the Manager of the Everett's Children’s Adventure Garden at the New York Botanical Gardens where she creates nature centered science exploration activities for kids. In 2023 Arvolyn was a TEDx speaker at the TEDxCUNY conference presenting on Environmental Education as Empowerment. Arvolyn can be found enjoying growing herbs at her local community garden in Harlem, NY and with the goal to start an urban herb farm in Harlem. You can stay connected with Arvolyn at and on Instagram at @goldfeather_
