Herbal CSA

We’re here to get you stoked about our 2024 Herbal CSA! 

 

We feel deeply connected to the Community Supported Agriculture model because of its ability to bring people together, get people outside and connected to their growers and for the stability that it gives to farmers early in the season when it's most needed. This CSA is for the herbal curious and for those that have been practicing for years. It is for anyone who is interested in connecting deeper with locally grown plant allies, feeling empowered by making their own herbal medicine and being a part of a community. 

 

By the end of this 6 month journey, you’ll have worked with over 20 varieties of fresh herbs, leaving you with an array of apothecary items as well as a booklet full of plant introductions and recipes to get started with. These recipes would include step-by-step instructions on how to make your own tinctures, oxymels, oils, salves, tea blends and more! You’ll also be added to our farm listserv, where we can all share our journeys with medicine making, ask questions, swap recipes and get to know one another!
