Autumn Equinox 

  • Also known to some as Mabon, can be looked at as a sort of Thanksgiving for those that have Earth-based spiritualities.  It is a time of balance, Day and night are equal, but darkness is soon to win.  It is also known as the second harvest. A time to be thankful for what we have accomplished and begin to do some self reflection before starting new projects.  It is the beginning of the astrological sign of Libra.  For me it is a time to pause.  It is a good time to start a yoga series or meditation class.  Find a sit spot. Observe rituals for this part of the year

This share we  are focused on revitalizing you from the intense summer sun and keeping your immune system strong as we prepare for cold, flu, and allergy season.

I pulled this from one of my favorite blogs, Herb Geek
Community Supported Herbalism (CSH)--By Herbalist Melanie Pulla
This is a brilliant business model that functions like a regular CSA (community structured agriculture), but instead of supporting farmers, you’re supporting herbalists. The USDA’s definition of CSA is a “community of individuals who pledge support to a farm operation so that the farmland becomes, either legally or spiritually, the community’s farm, with the growers and consumers providing mutual support and sharing the risks and benefits of food production.” I love this definition when applied to herbalism – the chosen herbalist becomes the community’s herbalist, and the community invests into the herbalist’s journey replete with highs and lows. I also love the idea of both producing medicinal herb baskets for the community as well as receiving a basket from my community herbalist that was specially crafted according to the season.  A win-win arrangement. Two notable examples of CSH ventures are Goldthread Herbal Apothecary who run a CSH from an herb farm and apothecary in Massachusetts, and Burdock & Rose who runs a creative and artistic CSH from her home in Michigan.
