Wild Chi Studio
Abby Johnston is a serial entrepreneur with a deep passion for the creative process, community building, and growing gardens for food, medicine and pleasure. Currently, she is the owner of Wild Chi Studio, an independent, herb-inspired wellness shop that she runs while she is in training to be a community herbalist and pursuing Functional Medicine health coach certification. After earning her BFA from Maine College of Art, and launching her professional career as a publisher, Abby explored other professional and advocacy pursuits such as running a commercial home kitchen, teaching physical self-defense to women and children, and hosting art shows at her gallery. All the while, Abby established gardens inspired by the wisdom and efforts provided by Wild Seed Project, a non-profit for whom she serves. Abby continues to rewild and build gardens today at the property she shares with her partner and puppy in Westbrook. When Abby is not eating, creating, or formulating with the wild world of plants, you will find her organizing community cleanups, playing out on Casco Bay, or exploring New England on her road bike searching for freshly-shucked oysters.
