Shoshanna grew up gardening with her family. They had many organic gardens. They sold their crops as their livelihood and preserved the balance of their harvest for the winter months. By the time she was ten years old she had a working herb garden with her mom. Each year since then, they have cultivated an herb garden that grows medicinal and culinary herbs. She started working at the Bulk Herb Store in 1998 at age fifteen. By 2002 she owned it and was working full time to build the business. She has written and published many articles and booklets on herbs, natural remedies, tinctures, and cooking with herbs.
