Herbariums are a library of pressed plants and have been used as a way to document plants on earth dating back to the 16th century. Learn this scientific practice that is still used today as a way to preserve plants for science and art. Attendees will learn proper technique to press their own plants to begin an herbarium and take their first mounted specimen home.

Arvolyn Hill (she/her) is an outdoor Educator and a community Herbalist 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 illness. She studied at Twin Star Connecticut's School of Herbalism and Energetic Studies and in 2016 opened Gold Feather, an online apothecary and flower art shop.

Arvolyn is passionate about reclaiming herbalism for BIPOC communities and 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. Arvolyn can be found enjoying growing herbs at her local community garden in Harlem, NY or sharing herbal tips on instagram @goldfeather_ @arvolyn. Website:
