Lisa Ganora began studying herbal medicine in the early ‘80s. After practicing as a Wise Woman tradition community herbalist, wildcrafter, and medicine-maker for a decade, Lisa returned to school at UNCA and graduated summa cum laude with multiple awards in biology and chemistry. After graduation she focused on exploring herbal constituents in the context of western clinical herbalism and Vitalist therapeutics.

In addition to founding and directing the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism from 2012-2020 and managing Elderberry’s Farm (a Rocky Mountain Herbal Education Center in Paonia, CO), Lisa has also served as Adjunct Professor of Pharmacognosy at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, and has lectured and taught classes at numerous schools and conferences around the world. Lisa especially loves to share the art of organoleptics: how to use our senses to understand the power and personalities of the herbs. This sensory approach is a traditional way to connect and communicate with plants as teachers and healers.
