Rewilding the Apiary

Welcome

Pellar & Pollen is a place created to weave together three strands of curiosity for a woman restor(y)ing at the wild edge. Each of these strands inspire an active and loving participation with our real selves, our wild bodies and the land that supports us. I founded Pellar & Pollen in 2018 as a platform from which to share this knowledge with you. 

About me

Hi, I’m Hayley and I live in Devon where I am kept by a number of fierce colonies of honeybees. I am a rewilding apiarist, horticulturist, mentor, natural fertility teacher, sensory herbalist, designer and a highly sensitive person using my energy and resources with love during this time of great change.

Much of my work as a herbalist, grower and bee person revolves around the herbal apiary medicine garden I tend using permaculture and forest garden principles. The plant medicines I work with are either organically grown and seasonally hand harvested from the herbal apiary or responsibly gathered wild. All remedies I provide are lovingly hand processed in my home. 

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 a passion for spreading greater menstrual awareness so that people have the information they need to make empowered and informed choices for their fertility.

Alongside Pellar & Pollen, I also work part time as an Architect and Landscape designer delivering community-led sustainable developments and affordable rural housing in the South West.

Training & experience

As a horticulturist, I 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 initally trained with the British Beekeeping Association and later with the National Beekeeping Trust. I receive ongoing tuition from the honeybees in my life. 

I am a certified NFPTA teacher of the Sympto-Thermal practice of Natural Family Planning. I have 3 years experience using this practice in my long term partnership. I have been mentoring women and couples for greater menstrual awareness and fertility empowerment since 2017. 

I am currently in my final year of training to become a Sensory Herb Practitioner with Sensory Solutions.

I am a qualified Architect and have been an Associate Tutor at the University of Plymouth since 2015.

I’m still building this site so please get in touch to say hi or find out more.
