It is our mission to share joyful, hands-on education and wellness through plant medicine while honoring our herbal traditions. Our approach is rooted in sharing a sense of place, nurturing curiosity and creativity, and inspiring ecological stewardship. We foster community action to enhance equitable access to the abundance of seasonal, local plant medicine, to build resilience, and to promote the practice of the honorable harvest.
Spoonful Herbals is a non-profit organization and the collaborative effort of community herbalists Katherine Elmer and Kara Buchanan. They share a deep love and respect for plants and wild places, a reverence for the human body and spirit, and a true sense of joy when sharing their work and their creations with the world.
