One-of-a-kind SEED SAVING WORKSHOP coming up at the very end of this month. Focused on MEDICINAL HERB SEEDS, there has never been anything quite like it before and we don't have plans for doing it again!  You are personally invited to come and learn some really good techniques for working with the VITAL LIFE FORCE!

Back at home in Southern Oregon, growing and shipping of ORGANIC LIVE ROOTS, ORGANIC PLANTS and NEWLY HARVESTED SEEDS continues unabated.  Feel free to take advantage of the goodness.  Together we make our MOTHER EARTH a better place for all interconnected beings.

Our potted nursery stock has for the most part been cut back once or twice this year already.  This means what you get is a sized-up root with sturdy aerial portions that ship nicely.  Basically, in the fall, it is indeed all about the roots. Plant them, mulch them, they will grow.  Ashitaba, comfrey, standard herbs of Western Herbalism like motherwort, elecampane, self heal, wood betony...  All on sale.  A great time to invest in plants to diversify windowsill, garden, greenhouse, woodland and... medicine cabinet.
