Lisa is our Community Herbalist.
Community herbalism is largely focused around traditional folk preparations and historical uses of herbs, but of course is also informed by modern uses and research. Common backgrounds of study in Western herbalism include Native American, eclectic, wise woman, earth-centered, and folk, among other traditions. Community herbalists can be trained through traditional or non-traditional methods such as self-study or apprenticeships (American Herbalists Guild, n.d.).
We grow a variety of plants on our farm, from veggies to medicinal plants. We're also very fortunate to have abundant Wisconsin flora on our property.
We wild-harvest and grows plants to be used in our handcrafted medicinal balms and oils. Any ingredients in our skin care products that we cannot produce from our farm, we acquire from sustainable sources. We make both vegan friendly and products containing beeswax.
We're a small operation and every plant from seed to harvest is loved and cared for. We are conscientious stewards of our land and in crafting of our products.

Lisa LeCuyer Kofakis, Herbalist
Hi! I thought you might like to know a little bit about what I do here at Silver Creek Springs. One of my goals is to create a medicinal garden that envelopes our entire property. Each year I add new plants both in my cultivated garden and also in the outlying areas. Creating an oasis of edible and medicinal perennials is very satisfying to me. I feel like I'm giving back to the earth and fulfilling my responsibility as a plant healer. As a Community Herbalist, I want to be the bridge between the people and the plants.
I cultivate plants and also wild-harvest from our land. From these, I create balms, oils, tinctures and teas to be used as plant medicine. I offer herbal consultations to aid my clients in using plants to support their bodily systems and also to address specific issues.
I also host plant identification walks and workshops (though at the current time I have suspended all group gatherings do to covid-19)
I'm a USMC veteran and studied Art History at Arizona State University. I've been a professional tattoo artist since 1991 and in 2018, I changed gears to pursue my career as an Herbalist. I hold my Western Herbalist certification and am in process of obtaining my Master Herbalist certificate through the Midwest School of Herbal Studies. I regularly take seminars through the American Herbalist Guild, along with other accredited organizations. I'm happy to always be a lifelong student of herbal medicine.
