Hey Yall! We are also selling ethically wildcrafted yarrow. We are harvesting from a place of great abundance, and saving the plants from the bushhog. We are selling aerial parts for $10 a pound fresh and $12 a pound dried (dried not yet available). Please support a local farm and local herbalist! Yarrow is a great astringent, diaphoretic, tonic, and even sedative plant. Please email mokarnage @ gmail.com if you want to buy yarrow

Just a heads up, Mo will be attending and teaching at the 10th annual Gaia Women’s Gathering this May 5-7 at Camp Albermarle outside of Charlottesville, VA.
There will be many teachers and vendors at this event.
Mo will be teaching a Know Your Rights workshop and a Prisons, PTSD, and Herbalism workshop.
“For over a decade the Gaia Gathering for Women has been a space where the women of our region can come together to learn, strengthen community connections and be deeply nourished in many ways. Classes in herbalism and holistic living are taught by a fruitful array of gifted teachers witha wide range of topics to support healing and connection. This year we are honored to feature renowned herbalist and author Deb Soule of Avena Botanicals. Deliciously healthy, organic food with gluten free options and the joyful singing and drumming of our Saturday night Beltane celebration are also integral parts of the gathering. Our event is held just north of Charlottesville at the lush and beautiful Camp Albemarle, a retreat space on the banks of the Moorman River. With a bounty of native plants and green space for camping and contemplation the camp continues to be a wonderful setting for the Gathering. We hope joining us will become a spring tradition in your self-care tool kit as it for many of us and we look forward to welcoming you at the gathering!” – from the event page

Thanks to our friends at the Acevedo Homestead for giving us a tip on how to move our hogs. Food on a stick does the trick to get Penne and Alfredo our 2 American Guinea Hogs moved from our garden where they had been doing some tilling for us, back to their pen in the woods.
