Hello, my name is Cara Saunders, the creator of Bear Wallow Herbs.
I became an herbalist to combine all of my unique talents for the purpose of helping people heal and inspiring people to develop a connection to nature. My journey to become an herbalist started in 1999 after I completed a B. S. in Forestry. I wondered if there wasn't more to forests than just the (commercially valuable) trees. So I started observing plants and learning from experienced herbalists including Lise Wolff and Matthew Wood in Minnesota. In 2003, I was a full-time student at the Blue Otter School of Herbal Medicine. I continue to learn as I interact with the plants on a daily basis.
In December 2007, Bear Wallow Herbs was awarded a technology grant from the eBay Foundation and I was named a Microenterprise Entrepreneur of the Year in Siskiyou County. In 2008, Bear Wallow Herbs was featured on the CBS program Eye on the Bay when Cara Saunders taught a workshop at Alemany Farm in San Francisco as part of the Green Festival.
