Share Shelter Donation!!!
THANK YOU all who donated to Share Shelter AGAIN!!! Let’s go for a new donation round!!! We’ve been keeping this shelter love going for a few years, let’s light some more fires and clean our homes! Ordering an extra can of decent food for the Shelter is an idea that Erin H. came up with a little while ago. Here’s a picture below of some of what was collected and donated to the Orchard’s Share Shelter! Other things we can collect are gently used items for kitchen, clothes, backpacks, hotel samples of hygiene supplies, books and magazines!

Serendipity Plant Lore’s Tea Listing! 

hese teas and herbs are highly medicinal, and are extras from my own organic garden and wild forages. All ethically harvested, the exceptions to the herbs that I’ve grown or foraged myself are those like Cinnamon, All Spice, and Red, Black and Green, and Olive Tea Leaves. These are ethically obtained from other Herbalists who have the same great care and ethic. These Tea Herb extras help to support the consultation work for those those in need of receiving free services. I thank you for your support, and hope, in return, you are tantalized with amazing Earth Medicine for your own health care and lovely, compost-able gifts! Some NEW offerings too! Limited Quantities. 🙂

Each of the tea offerings has been used by this herbalist for many decades to aid health, enjoyment and vitality, recovery from many health problems.

Serendipity Plant Lore School will be at the F.A.R.M. Stocking Up Event this coming Saturday!

Hi Herb Folks, Student Folks and Friend Folks!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Serendipity Plant Lore School of Ethnobotanical Studies is going to be at the F.A.R.M. stocking up event for its third season! I’ll have a table there with wild foraged and organic garden herbs and hand-made herbal teas from Serendipity Plant Lore School of Ethnobotanical Studies, Wild Mushrooms, and other cute little herb tidbits!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Pre-order to guarantee the filling of your order (instructions below), but I will bring extra wild foraged mushrooms, and possibly other berries and teas to the event. Pre-order is October 1st, but I will bring any extras I have too! I have enjoyed being part of this gathering, I love each and every Farmer at the event, hold dearly in my heart the organizers of this group, and highly encourage folks to come grab some local seasonal goodies to stock up for winter from great, sustain-ably minded and organic farmers and producers! This is also a good time, if you have a few questions, to bring them to the event, especially about herbs, healing, pickling, farming and other food subjects/discussions.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I don’t always get a chance to respond to every email, but this is a perfect place to grab my ear for a 5 minute free consultation gab! I’ll also be doing some Herbal Medicine Talks, Traditional Food Preservation Demos and more as time permits. So come on out, would love to see you!!!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

>>>F.A.R.M. is hosting our second “Stocking Up” event here in SW Washington on October 11th, 1-4pm! Mark your calendars!

What sets this market apart from a farmers’ market or other direct marketing option is the fact it’s an annual event and customers are encouraged to purchase the quantity they would need for a year. They can purchase bulk quantities of staples directly from farmers.

We have very pickily selected farmers that we know and trust, and value agriculture techniques from, to keep this event a wholesome, healthy, and exciting time — keeping the offerings as near as our food shed as possibly possible.

We have several awesome sessions going on, as well as a petting zoo, hay maize, face painting, wagon rides and lots more! Bring the whole family!

Maybe we’ll get lucky and have an impromtu singer songwriter show up like in 2012, or a band like last year!

Pre-orders are encouraged (and necessary for many items). We will be sending out a detailed list of offerings on October 1st, with orders due by October 8th. To receive this list, email getfreshwithfarms@gmail.com and express interest in participating!

See you there!<<<
