Our name

Our name, Remedy Garden, reflects our belief that many remedies for common ailments can easily be grown and harvested from a home garden! We are currently building a farm-to-apothecary program where we connect with local herb farmers to provide us with the freshest bioregional medicinal herbs available!

Our philosophy

Our philosophy for health is holistic and based on the principle of the healing power of nature. We respect each person’s innate self-healing abilities and respect the earth by sourcing herbs that are organically grown or sustainably wildcrafted.

Our mission

Our mission is to empower people to use herbs and natural medicine for health and well-being! Our classes and events are designed to share the wisdom of the plants with beginners and more experienced herbalists alike!

We also offer private health consultations by a skilled team of local herbalists and practitioners by appointment.

Herbalist

I am interested in researching what supports a steady, healthy ecosystem for people and the planet. My studies in herbalism, cycles, soil, regenerative agriculture, art, community, nature & beyond have led me to the conclusion that there are infinite possibilities to support healing and flourishing and honor hurting and endings. I’d love to connect with you about health through sharing stories and plant medicine.
