Of Celtic, Calabrian and Slavic descent, Bonnie Rose Weaver strives to bring the beauty of the mountains and the wonder of the ocean’s tides to the wellbeing of her fellow urbanites. Born and raised in the city by the bay (occupied Ohlone land), her practice of herbalism focuses on access to and education about plant medicine.
At the age of 21, Bonnie was sick and tired of taking inhalers to “treat” her/their sports-induced asthma. She/they took herself to the herb shop and blended a tea. She was able to breathe deeper and her lungs became stronger. She never took inhalers again; the power of plants was proven to her. She has since committed her life to sharing plant wisdom with others.
