Herbal Radio

Jan 27, 2023

Mountain Rose Herbs is excited to present our brand-new show on Herbal Radio called “Plant Stories”. This series is all about the heartfelt, fun, entertaining, educational, inspiring, and personal plant stories that stand out to our guests. Tune in each week to hear from esteemed herbalists, nature-based artists, and plant-lovers to learn about a specific plant, hear a touching tale, bask in a poem, or possibly dive into some folklore.

Our good friends, Howie Brounstein and Steven Yeager, stopped by our podcast studio to record the inaugural episode. Having taught together for decades at the Columbines School of Botanical Studies, Howie & Steven showcase their unique teaching style, philosophy, and humor as they banter about their personal and professional plant connections. Always entertaining, we hope you enjoy the many plant stories and botanical song beats brought to you by Howie & Steven. 

Howie Brounstein has taught botany, herbalism, and wildcrafting extensively for nearly four decades, including at such herbal establishments as the Michael Moore’s Southwest School of Botanical Medicine. He is the co-owner and a primary instructor of the Columbines School of Botanical Studies and has a clinical practice in Eugene, Oregon. He is well known for his inspiring in-depth teaching style and his passionate love of plants.

Steven Yeager is Director of Quality and Regulatory Affairs at Mountain Rose Herbs where he oversees laboratory operations including their identity program as well as assuring GMP compliance. He is also trained as a field botanist and wild harvester. He serves on the following board of directors: the American Herbal Products Association, AHPA’s Foundation for Education and Research on Botanicals, United Plant Savers, and the Native Plant Society of Oregon. Steven is the former co-owner of the Columbines School of Botanical Studies in Eugene, Oregon where he was a co-instructor for over 20 years.
