Kate’s Herbs officially began in 2010, but the true beginnings started in my grandmother’s backyard garden. That was her go-to when any of her grandchildren sneezed or coughed in her presence. Over the years, I learned what plants she would select for various ailments.
While working a night job, I picked up the study of herbs again to pass the time. Imagine my surprise when within a week, coworkers were asking me to create healing remedies for their health issues. What could I do, but say yes?
So that launched the beginning of this dream. I have been a vendor at Farmers’ Markets and taught workshops at area libraries & senior living facilities, as well as through the Olympia Food Co-op and GRuB.
