The Earth is a generous and caring mother. She gives us exactly what we need when we need it. For our health, and to become more integrated with the land we need to change our habits to suit the season. Our bodies need this so much that some of these changes we do without even thinking, like craving squash or potato soup in the fall and winter, fresh greens in the spring, and fruit of the summer.
When you live with the wild land and know the plants it’s not just your food that changes, but the herbs you eat or use for medicine and cooking also change. Most of us want to live with this way, as our ancestors did with the land, but we don’t have the time or know-how to be out foraging, or the means to dry, ferment or otherwise process and store the goods. We’re making the Sacred Gardener Seasonal Boxes for you. Just sign up and a lovely surprise will arrive just on time as the seasons change to inspire and sustain body and soul.
When does it start?
The first box arrives Fall Equinox. The next on Winter Solstice followed by Spring Equinox and the final box arrives Summer Solstice.
What will be in the boxes?
In the boxes we offer you the fruits of abundance from the season ending and the medicine our bodies need for the coming months. These gifts are grounded in what the earth has to offer each season that support tried and true personal practices we’ve kept for decades to keep us alive and our family in good health year round.
Each box will include 6-8 herbal products.
Some examples of what will be included:
Herbal tea blends, tincture blends, simple herbs, tonics, bitters, balms, culinary herbs, herbal and wildcrafted spice blends, DIY projects (wild infused recipes, with the ingredients, blend of herbs to create your own herbal vinegars), herbal infused skin care (creams, toners, face and body scrubs) and more. We’ll send along instructions on how to use the items you receive.
