Pellar & Pollen is a place created to bring together three strands of curiosity for a woman restor(y)ing at the wild edge.
These strands share in common a power that inspires an active participation with our real selves, our wild bodies and the land that supports us. I founded Pellar & Pollen as a platform to share this knowledge and to harness this wild power for ecological and social change.
Hi, I’m Hayley and I live in Devon where I am kept by a fierce colony of rewilding honeybees. I am a rewilding apiarist, horticulturist, mentor, natural fertility teacher, herbalist, designer and a highly sensitive person trying to figure it all out and use my energy ad resources appropriately in this time of great change.
I have a herbal apiary medicine garden which was created using permaculture and forest garden principles. The plant medicines I make are organically grown and seasonally hand harvested from the herbal apiary (or responsibly gathered wild), hand processed and lovingly made by me. I am a certified teacher of Natural Family Planning and support women and couples into deeper cycle awareness to achieve or limit pregnancy naturally. This work is driven by my passion for spreading menstrual awareness and fertility empowerment.
Alongside Pellar & Pollen, I also work part time as an Architect and Landscape designer to deliver community-led sustainable developments and affordable rural housing.
Training & experience
I have completed an apprenticeship in Sustainable Horticulture at Schumacher College, hold a Permaculture Design Certificate and have trained with the Agroforestry Research Trust. As a bee person, I trained first with the British Beekeeping Association and later with the National Beekeeping Trust and receive ongoing tuition with the bees. I am a certified NFPTA teacher of the Sympto-Thermal practice of Natural Family Planning. I am training as a Sensory Herb Practitioner with Sensory Solutions. I am a qualified Architect and an associate tutor at the University of Plymouth.
I’m still building this site so please get in touch to say hi or find out more.
