Kim Buckley Falcone ’78

Nature’s Way

Kim Falcone has been in tune with nature from a young age. She pursued a degree in wildlife biology at URI hoping to become a veterinarian or a biologist.

Her plans took a few detours and led her to a great-grandmother, Nellie Campbell, a village herbalist in North Kingstown who Kim remembers meeting only once when she was a young child. About 14 years ago, Kim began her journey on the same herbal path.

When Kim’s daughters, now 19 and 17, were young, she stopped using chemical cleaning products and pursued natural alternatives. “That rekindled my interest in biology and nature,” she recalls.

After initial studies, Kim started Lily’s Garden Herbals LLC in 2000. She operates the holistic business from a cottage on her family’s property in Wakefield, R.I. She has combined herbal therapy with the formulation and sale of natural products, from household cleaning items to homemade teas and tinctures. Many of these products are available at natural health retailers throughout Southern New England.
