Seasonal Wellness Boxes
Community Supported Herbalism
Do you long for connection with the plant world?
Do you want to instill a sense of balance as you travel through the wheel of the year?
WHAT IS A CSH?
Inspired by the model of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), these Community Supported Herbalism (CSH) boxes are pre-order herbal medicine share boxes. Each quarterly box focuses on the energetics of the season and a handful of plant allies, so you can focus on working with these plants in a deeper way. Each box comes with a booklet that will give you more information on each plant, the seasonal energetics, how to properly use the remedies provided, recipes, plant inspiration, lore, and other medicinal uses.
WHY A CSH?
Purchasing these boxes is a great way to build up your home apothecary for a lesser cost, embody wellness, become more familiar with the healing power of herbs, to work with plants throughout the seasons they grow in, and to become more confident in your ability to use herbs to heal yourself and your loved ones. When you purchase these boxes you not only support my work and passion for seasonal practices but also the hard work of small organic and regenerative farmers, as together our work provides the necessary ingredients for each box.
Below is the seasonal offerings- please note that because all herbs and ingredients are homegrown and sourced locally changes may occur.
“Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.”
― Henry David Thoreau, Walden
