About Natalie

Natalie Kilmer lives in Oakland, California where she owns and operates The Little Acre. Natalie creates herbal formulas and works with her clients to grow beautiful, delicious and medicinal gardens that use water wisely. It is her passion to share her love of the natural world and the wisdom it has to teach.


Natalie grew up in Northern California near the American River in Placer County, where she first fell in love with wild bodies of water. She later attended UC Berkeley studying Religion which she continues to do through the lens of Nature. Between projects, Nat spends her time researching different microclimates, watersheds, and plant friends from the sidewalks of the city to the backcountry.
