Community Supported Apothecary
Members of Community Supported Apothecary invest in local growers and herbalists to both grow and craft preparations that empower local, herbal home healthcare and education. Members purchase a share at the onset of the season and receive a monthly care package. The herbs that we cannot grow ourselves will be purchased from organic and ethically wildcrafted sources. We hope to increase our homegrown herbs over time.
What’s in an Herb Share?
Each month members come to the farm and fill their basket with a minimum of 5 hand-crafted herbal preparations; may include teas, spices, tinctures, truffles, bath and body care, spritzers, cleaners, sachets, and more. Some preparations will only be available seasonally and in limited supply, and others will remain available at pick-up every month.
We include written educational guides on product use and virtues. Nicole will be at pick-up to share the stories, benefits, and guidelines for use of each preparation, and to answer your questions. In addition, share members get discounts on registration fees for herbal classes and “craftshops” at Heartbeat, led by local herbalists.
How Does Pick-up Work?
The last tuesday of every month, members come to the farm between 2:30-6:30 PM to pick up their Herbal Care Package. We will have a diversity of options available, and members can choose which products they most want for themselves and their households for the coming month. We encourage you to linger and have tea, and take a tour of the gardens. You can bring your family and friends. It’s a celebration of the gifts from this living landscape!
