The Edge Effect

What happens when ecosystems collide?

The edge effect is an ecological concept that describes a greater diversity of plant and animal life in the region where the edges two ecosystems overlap, such as land/water or forest/pasture. At the edge of two overlapping ecosystems, you find species from both places, as well as unique species that aren’t found in either ecosystem. These plants and animals are specially adapted to the conditions of the transition zone between the two edges.

This holds true with people as well. Those of us who, through life circumstances and/or personal choice, are specially adapted to our physical and metaphorical transition zones.

Forest Edge Herbals is interested in the intersections of herbalism, botany, society, and somatic experiencing to support marginalized communities and celebrates the teeming diversity life brings us.
