January's workshop will focus on maintaining our emotional health and well being during the winter months.
Where to find quality herbs?
Ideally, we could all go out and gather our botanicals from pristine woods and green meadows, however the reality of wild crafting here in Iowa is that you have to be quite careful about where you source your raw materials.
The small managed recreational areas we have spray herbicides or pesticides and road side ditches are often reservoirs for agricultural run-off.
Each spring I have a limited number of medicinal herb starts available. Herbs I grow and those I have on hand are also available to my clients.
The following local businesses are sources I would also recommend.
If you can't find something locally, the following links will take you to the websites of some of the best medicine makers in the Midwest/Great Lakes Region.
This is not an affiliate thing, these websites belong to dear friends.
