Elen Sentier is a spirit keeper and taleweaver from a long family lineage. She was born on Dartmoor, grew up on the edge of Exmoor and now lives with her husband, cats and a host of wildlife in the Welsh Marches where she writes and teaches British native shamanism. From Elen's childhood her father and uncle taught her gardening. Later she trained at Pershore College in Warwickshire and, later still, built three award-winning biodynamic show gardens at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show (2004-6). Her garden in Herefordshire has been Demeter certified since she moved there in 2000 and, before that, she worked her little London garden biodynamically too.
