Community Supported Herbalism – Useful Links

I’m getting very excited indeed about bringing herbs into people’s lives with our herbal box scheme. Back before I was a herbalist, growing up on a farm and feeling passionate about sustainable food, I went to some meetings about setting up a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) scheme so I feel I have a good grasp of the importance of Slow Food, the opposite of fast food in every way. Imagine a world where all people can access food that is good for them, good for those who grow it and good for the planet.  Check out the Slow Food website out for inspiration.

I didn’t see myself being part of the Slow Medicine movement back then but this is how I come to see myself now at the beginning of a new phase in my life, a time of empowerment and change. I feel empowered through learning how to make my own medicine and I can’t wait to plant seeds of inspiration and education into the fertile soils of our community.

Check out all the other Community Supported Herbalism projects in the USA and Canada and get as inspired as I am!
