Opportunities to Learn
Green Team: Volunteer Herb Garden Crew
Herbalist Cara Saunders plants and maintains a section of the garden at the Siskiyou Land Trust Garden that is designated for growing herbs for use in creating the herbal remedies for Bear Wallow Herbs. The garden is located at 522 E Alma St in Mt Shasta, California. If you are local to Mt. Shasta area, contact me about joining a fun group that is enthusiastic about learning about growing and harvesting herbs! We meet 2 days per week, usually for 2 hour work sessions, sometimes longer. We have nice picnic tables in the shade under a big tree where we can take breaks or sit to process the herbs.
We grow California poppy, calendula, lemon balm, wild lettuce, goldenrod, yarrow, arnica, plantain, wild oats, rosemary, and many others! While most of the herbs are used for Bear Wallow Herbs products, sometimes there are extras that volunteers can take home.
Call or email Cara to find out about our current work days.
I offer private herb walks for individuals, families, and groups! We'll get up close and personal with local medicinal plants.
Learn how to recognize native herbs and locally abundant weeds while enjoying success stories of working with herbs to improve health.
If you live near Mt. Shasta, California, here's your chance to get to know the plants that live here too!
