Edenspore is the multifaceted life project of Robyn Mello–bringing together original music, permaculture design, herbalism, visual art, eco-social consciousness, and a healthy dose of magic to usher in a healthier world.
Mello is visiting Troy during her “Reminders From Another Time” music and medicine tour. Prior to making Edenspore full-time this year, Mello worked in Philadelphia with various nonprofit urban farms and The Philadelphia Orchard Project, designing and educating around biodiverse community orchards in 60 locations around the city.
