If you haven't signed up for our Spring CSA don't miss your chance! "CSA" stands for Community Supported Apothecary- so, you support us and we support you by providing locally available herbal medicines specifically prepared with the goal of filling up your medicine cabinet and your first aid kit. The CSA baskets ship out 4 times a year, seasonally. We wanted to have a special offering for those who are just beginning to get familiar with herbal medicine, or for long term clients that want a surprise seasonal boost or two (or 4) to address more acute care needs.
Spring CSA deadline is March 6th.
This seasons basket contains:
