After all, the point of this site is to learn about herbs!

  My name is Karen Bergeron and I am the editor and sole owner of this web site and Alternative Nature Enterprises. I have studied medicinal plants for over 25 years and have shared what I have learned online since 1998. I've photographed thousands of wild herbs and can identify at least 500 species of native and naturalized plants in my area. I make and sell herbal skin care products and soap, as well as a few handmade necklaces to support this site. I give occasional speeches and herb walks to educate people about interesting medicinal and edible wild plants.

  One day in 1997 I started a little web site about herbs on my home page and was started in early 1998. My how it has grown! I am very thankful for the people who visit my web site and especially those who help pay the bills by buying my products, sponsoring the site or even just recommending this site to friends.
