FOR THE LOVE OF GROWING
I seek to create beautiful, soul nourishing, medicinally rich gardens. And as I tend with hoe and hori hori, choosing who to invite and who to nourish, i acknowledge that the master gardener is Mother Earth and we can merely make suggestions. Earth is wild and where there is water she covers herself with abundant green life. Gardening is not for the feint of heart. It is for those who are happy with a certain wild chaos and who like to ride the waves of burgeoning life and daily tending. As with health, cultivation is a lifestyle. It is entering the fray to dance with the myriad beings coexisting in the ecosystem of which we are part artist, part a color upon Earth's pallette.
FOR THE LOVE OF TENDING
I grow many medicinal herbs from seed for my gardens and for sale. Young plants will be available late May to mid June.
Currently available and ready for pick up (updated May 8): Valerian, Bee balm, Nettles...
FOR THE LOVE OF LEARNING
Working in the garden is lovely. Working in the garden with friends is lovelier.
Mondays are volunteer days 10am-12:30pm, a shared lunch and then 2-4pm. If you'd like to get involved message me and i will add you to the Facebook group!
Hands on experience is one of the best ways to learn. Come help out in the gardens- weeding beds, digging roots, harvesting herbs- doing whatever needs doing and chat about our green allies. It is a great way to see how medicinal herbs like to grow and how I do things around my garden.
