About the Instructor: Deepa Preeti Natarajan

Deepa has spent nearly five years working for the University of California Botanical Garden at Berkeley, as the program and tour coordinator, furthering her pursuit of ethnobotany. She has presented a wide variety of courses and events in traditional medicine, natural dyes and fibers, paper making, soap making, cooking and many other uses of plants, and also coordinating the garden's first ever "green gala," a sustainable fashion show.
