LuAnn Raadt was raised on a farm in southern Minnesota and grew up with a love of plants and growing things. She now happily gathers many of the “weeds” her family once tried to eradicate, and uses them in remedies for common physical ailments and imbalances. Trained under Lise Wolff and other local herbalists, this farmer’s daughter enjoys growing a wide variety medicinal herbs that are not readily available or are considered at-risk in the wild. She is also passionate about introducing others to the fascinating world of herbal remedies and teas and teaching them how to make and use remedies for themselves.
