Life with Herbs


Gardens, green and growing

This past winter I moved back to my family farm in North Carolina.  A beautiful 80 acres of fertile soil, with creeks, a pond, forests and Mother Earth loving vibes.  My intention is to be growing many of the medicinal herbs that go into my natural products. As it evolves, I will keep updating pictures of our beautiful plant allies, so you can see the medicines as they grow from the Earth to you, my dear supporters.
