Each season on the equinoxes and solstices--spring (March 20), summer (June 21), fall (Sept 22), and winter (Dec 21), I'll prepare a bundle of 5-7 handmade herbal medicines that are seasonally relevant to your physical, emotional, and mental health. Each medicine will be made with as many locally sourced herbs as possible, from my garden and the land we live on.
You can order single or double shares. Single shares are good for individuals; double shares feature twice the amount of each item and are better suited for families or households. For single shares, tinctures are 1oz and teas are 1/2 pint. For double shares, tinctures are 2oz and teas are 1 pint. Pick up your shares each season at my home/garden/apothecary at 501 E Trinity Ave in Durham.
Check out the list from last year's Herbal CSA at the bottom of the form to get a sense of what will be included.
Please contact me if you want any extra items, if you have questions about the best way to use your new medicine, or if you want to order other items along with your share. With questions or to schedule an herbal consultation for more detailed health advice, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
