Victoria Fillmore

Middle Tennessee Community Herbalist

Victoria is a tried and true community herbalist who’s entire business has been built by making remedies for any and everyone that comes to her in need. Cedar Hill Homestead is a wild foraged, seasonal apothecary & homestead. Specializing in health & wellness and integrating the two through mind and body. Offering consultations, an array of products & classes, identification walks & workshops, Cedar Hill specializes in facilitating a relationship with plants in our busy world. Her passion lies in seasonal & bioregional medicine, with the belief that what you need is already out there waiting when you need it. Victoria works with native plants and invasive species alike, working to educate on the importance of knowing the difference and how to work with both.

Victoria works with her local parks department to glean invasive plants, making way for the natives to flourish as well a teaching free monthly plant walks. Having grown up in the South, plant knowledge was common knowledge. In her words, knowing what’s beneath your feet, what to nibble on and how to use it is not only a birth right, but a super power we all have access to. You will see Victoria light up most when educating and giving this super power to children. Growing up in the woods outside of Nashville, every family member and neighbor alike had a nickname for the plants around them. As she dove deep into herbalism at age 15, self treating endometriosis, she quickly learned that all of these powerful plant allies she needed to heal were already her closest neighbors. Victoria is a permanent student and forever friend to the forest, understanding that the vast knowledge in this area is full of endless new possibilities.
