Welcome to the world of Ancel Mitchell, herbalist, storyteller, chocolatier, and overall quality human being.

In our interview, we dive into the value of connecting with & supporting local indigenous communities, various ways that one might prepare a cacao bean, and the value of embracing the mythological roots of our plant medicines. There's a lot to unpack here!

Kick back and enjoy the stories that Ancel lays out for us. You can listen to the full interview here: #006 Ancel Mitchell of Finca La Isla: Cacao - Traditional Roots to Cottage Industry. It’ll be time well spent.

We've also created a downloadable PDF of all the awesome tips and tricks we've learned about cacao, composting, and more from Ancel! There's a download link below!

I also visited Ancel for a late-night beach-side storytelling session, the night following our interview. And it was really cool! She shared a modernized spin on an ancient Greek story of Demeter and a Norweigan tale of Tatterhood.

I recorded them on audio and have them available for your listening delight on your YouTube Channel:

Demeter and the Old Crone:

Tatterhood the Princess Twin

And stay tuned! We'll be releasing more tips & tricks on Permies regularly!
