Lauren Anderson and Finn Oakes


With the goal of sourcing all of their plants locally, Lauren and Finn started Steadfast Herbs as an herbal CSA, a seasonal box of herbal remedies based on the equinoxes and solstices. They started growing herbs at Root Down Farm in Pescadero. Today, they grow over 50 varieties on half of their acre. Steadfast Herbs uses organic farming practices to tend the soil, and they plant primarily perennial herbs, which require less water and other inputs than annual crops. Steadfast Herbs supports people in taking care of themselves and each other through handmade tinctures, teas, and salves. To give back to the community, they donate a portion of the products to organizations working for economic and racial justice in the Bay Area.


Steadfast Herbs cultivates over 50 varieties of organic medicinal herbs, which they grow for use in their own products and for other local herbalists. They use local honey and beeswax from Oakland’s Bee Healthy Honey Shop.
