Fort Collins Book Fest is taking a pause in 2022 for a refresh. We'll be back with a new event in early 2023!

Chelsea Gilmore

Artist, educator, herbalist

Chelsea Gilmore is an artist, educator, and herbalist living and working in the Front Range of Colorado. As a youngster, Chelsea had an affinity to all things nature, art and food, and in her growing years found ways to combine these fascinations. Through the years, she has worked on organic farms, been a garden and farm educator, art teacher, worked at local markets and bakeries, and taught nutrition, cooking, and food preservation classes. She currently teaches the Funky Foods series at the Equinox Center of Herbal Studies, and is the Arts and Events Coordinator at Wolverine Farm Publick House.

Chelsea is a certified herbalist through the Equinox Center of Herbal Studies, in Fort Collins, where she has spent nearly five years intensively participating in advanced studies of herbalism. Chelsea likes long walks in the forest, foraging wild foods, dancing like nobody’s watching, and in her free time she likes to start new experiments with food, herbs, and art supplies.
