Kristin Currin

Kristin Currin is the cofounder of Humble Roots Nursery, a native plant nursery in the Columbia River Gorge recognized for its efforts in sustainability and promoting native plants. Kristin noticed the beauty of native plants at an early age while exploring the fields and forests of her childhood in Ohio. Traveling and studying biology, agroforestry, and ethnobotany, she came to the Pacific Northwest and cultivated her passion for native plants while working with them in nurseries and in the field. She currently lives off-grid in Oregon with her husband, Andrew, where they run the nursery, ethically propagating many important species of native plants. Their labor of love has involved them with innumerable native plant endeavors including pollinator and conservation plantings of all shapes and sizes, school gardens, backyard habitats, restoration projects, and rare plant conservation. When not in the nursery, she has been found leading tropical nature tours in Costa Rica and natural history tours in Southeast Alaska.
