This is Our Story
Here at For the Love of Dandelions, we create all sorts of herbal goods and handcrafted soap. For more information on our interpretation of the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) model, read through our FAQs.
For the Love of Dandelions was launched in 2013 by Marisa Harder-Chapman, who continues to act as the chief gardener, maker, researcher, web designer, accountant, shipper and more, with the much needed and appreciated help of her family.
Marisa has enjoyed gardening for as long as she can remember. She started paying more attention to wildcrafting plants and mushrooms when she went to school in the Pacific Northwest, where not a millimeter lacked something growing on it. She attended St. Catherine University to obtain her MA in Holistic Health, where she completed the herbology track as well as research on storytelling and childbirth education. Now, with each passing season, she stives to learn more about plants, incorporate more of them into the daily lives of her family and she looks forward to sharing what she’s found with others. Starting an herbal business has allowed her to combine her passions for gardening, plants, bio-diversity, holistic health, creating, life-long learning, and localism.
