Fall and Winter Herbal CSA's are already filling up....they won't last
long. Two different shares available and too many awesome herbals that
you don't wanna miss! Sign up at www.morganbotanicals.com
Morgan Botanicals is very excited to continue offering Herbal CSA Memberships! Enjoy fresh seasonal herbals that are homegrown, wild-harvested, handmade and delivered to your door! For those who have supported the Herbal CSA in the past, we thank you and hope you have enjoyed our herbal offerings. New herbals are being added to the share every season so we look forward to sharing the abundance!
This is a great opportunity for local and not so local to be a part of our monthly herbal medicines program. We have created an Herbal CSA Program (or rather CSH-Community Supported Herbalism) for those who would like to subscribe. It begins each season, offering homegrown and wildharvested handmade herbals to each subscriber. Each month herbal offerings such as teas, tinctures, syrups, oils, salves, vinegars, jellies and other herbal products will be available.
Our seasonal herbal CSA's run for three months and the fee for the entire subscription (once a month pickup or delivery) is 140.00 for the Small Herbal CSA and 200.00 for the Large Herbal CSA, each payable at the time you subscribe. Members will be able to pick up their herbals the first Saturday of each month (delivery option is also available), or your box can be mailed out to you (delivery option is also available).
Morgan Botanicals Herbal CSA membership is a great way to build your own home supply of herbal medicines, learn more about how to use local and medicinal plants, and explore new ways of taking charge of your own health.
~Here's what came this month in the June Large Herbal CSA~
By purchasing a share you are also helping to support the plant work we do: growing and processing herbs, turning them into herbal medicines that nourish the body and increase vitality as well as our training programs that teach children about foraging, plant identification, how to grow their own food and medicine garden, health and nutrition and the basics of cooking and medicine making. If interested in our Junior Master Gardener classes please send inquiry to Jessica Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you information on this program.
