This just in from our friends at Earth Tide Botanicals on Casitas Pass between Carpinteria and Ojai:
“Share the seasons of our magical oak woodland garden from the beginnings of spring to the bountiful exuberance of late fall. Your herbal CSA is a box of homemade herbal goodness every other month throughout the growing season from March to December. A CSA allows us the chance to expand our market garden while creating unique, seasonally-inspired botanical medicine.
“Shares might include dried teas, one-of-a-kind herbal honeys, vinegars, oxymels, tinctures, salves + elixirs, flower essences, herbal hydrosols, adaptogenic seasonings + more. Each box will be attuned to the season of its flourishing, as well as to particular body systems. Each share will include an illustrated zine delving deeper into the plants and processes of the season.
“All plants grown with loving care + organic practices in our small garden, honoring the limited resources and medicinal potency of the mountains we call home. Each product is homemade + small-batch.
“Local pickup in Santa Barbara/Carpinteria/Ojai area, or shipped anywhere. Shares will be available in late March, May, July, September + November. Each share is $60, for a total of $300 for the full CSA (+ shipping). Or pay each month, but please let us know by the first of the month when boxes will be shipped so we can harvest and potion accordingly.
“Reserve a spot in our garden on the Products page, where you can choose a monthly or yearly option. Thank you so much for your support of local, heart-felt healing!
