SandRa studied herbal medicine and came to the realisation that she would rather grow the herbs than administer herbs. There started the dream of having her own organic herb farm, to grow quality herbs for the supply of the herbal medicine market and plants for all whom love and appreciate herbs and their varied uses.  You may have met SandRa at markets throughout the lower North Island where she successfully sold her herbs and AMAZING Kokedama.  SandRa is based in Eketāhuna (North Wairarapa/Tararua)
