Spoonful Herbals is the collaborative effort of community herbalists Kara Buchanan and Katherine Elmer. They share a deep love of 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.
Our mission is to cultivate sustainable leadership, sense of place, and ecological stewardship through hands-on education in nature-based wellness and local community action.
Kara completed the Advanced Herbal training Program at Sage Mountain and has created herbal products for her community and maintained medicinal herb gardens for many years. She is on staff at the Railyard Herbal Apothecary and at Rock Point School where she stewards gardens and teaches food, gardening, nutritional and wellness. Our mission is to cultivate sustainable leadership, sense of place, and ecological stewardship through hands-on education in nature-based wellness and local community action.
