In 2017, The Herban farm will continue to operate its weekly farm stand with a lively array of local vegetables,a weekly basket program, an On Demand herbal harvesting program which allows neighbors to access the freshest herbs growing on the small farm for medicinal and culinary use.
Our herbal apothecary is loaded with freshly harvested medicinal herbs, herbal cosmetics and healing products crafted by Herba farm founder Yonnette Fleming. Please check out our calendar of advanced food medicine, herbalism and sound healing classes. High vibrational communal dinner fundraisers will occur at high moons on the farm as in previous years.
Our work engages head, heart and hands
This was truly a nourishing day - our seeds, our food, our songs, the drums.
Love is everywhere on the farm.
Please send an email if you would like to be a part of this Earth love. Our formal volunteer recruitment begins in May.
It's nice to talk about food and nicer to actually produce it.
seed is culture - seed is liberation - seed is the future - seed is energy - seed is potential - seed is life - seed is history
