Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them. ~ A. A. Milne
We believe that creating a sustainable future begins in the heart and on the land ! We lovingly cultivate vibrant, healing herbs, without the use of herbicides or pesticides – integrating the principal of reciprocity in all that we tend here. We mindfully wildcraft what is locally available from this wild 34 acre sanctuary we call home, and grow “at risk” native medicinal herbs that are in danger of disappearing due to over harvesting. Last, but certainly not least, we offer classes to empower and inspire you to reclaim your power to heal yourself and your community.
Why support bio-regional herbs ?
Purchasing bio-regional herbs 1) supports local farms and growers 2) saves resources by not having to travel long distances 3) supports the wealth of the local economy 4) ensures the quality and practices of the herbs being grown and 5) focusing on what is available “locally” removes the issue of over harvesting herbs in other areas and 6) allows your body to be in sync with plants that grow in your region.
