How It Works
In its inaugural year (2019), the You-Pick Medicinal Herb Garden grew fabulously with plenty of rain and warmth. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and gathered, from CSA members being introduced to the world of healing plants to practicing herbalists who were able to gather medicinal plants at their prime.
How It Works:
This is not a for-profit venture. But neither is it a for-loss venture. If you would like to collect medicinal herbs, please consider a freewill donation to help cover the costs of seeds and supplies, keeping in mind both the quality and quantity of the herbs you pick.
To pick medicinal herbs, set up a time with LuAnn by email, phone, or text. Because this garden plot is on the site of an operating organic farm/CSA, it is important to schedule in advance with LuAnn so someone can meet you there, show you around, and stay on site to help as needed. Erin and Ben, the farmers who own the CSA, are busy with the farm itself; thus all details to do with the You-Pick Medicinal Herbs Garden will be handled by LuAnn and Paige. We look forward to meeting and making new herbal friends!
