Herbal CSA: 2021 Registration is Open
Wellspring Apothecary offers a Three Season Herbal CSA! The basic idea is that CSA members will receive a Summer, Fall, and Winter care package with a variety of herbal products that offer support for the specific season and highlight the plants most abundant at that time.
Below is a sample of what past years' packages have included and roughly what you can expect (plus some extra surprise items, and the opportunity for some choice and customized blends):
Summer Care Package (early July): Rosa Rugosa Tincture, Nourishing Tea Blend, Lip Balm, Bug Spray.
Fall Care Package (early September): Heal All Salve, Stress Less Tea Blend, Digestive Aide, Sound Sleep Blend.
Winter Care Package (early December): Fire Cider, Respiratory Steam Blend, Immune Tonic, Sore Throat Spray.
I offer the Herbal CSA on a sliding scale: $165-$225.00 (for all three seasons) as a commitment to making herbal medicine affordable. If the cost is still prohibitive, ask me about work-share options. Single season care packages can also be bought at a pro-rated cost.
The money I collect through the CSA helps to subsidize mutual aid donations that I make to organizations and community members in Providence and beyond and goes primarily towards the purchase of bottles, alcohol, bees-wax, and postage.
CSA shares can be paid for through Venmo (@Mimi-Budnick). Please be sure to put Herbal CSA in the note. If you are not a venmo user, let me know and we can make other arrangements.
*Please note, I am only accepting CSA members from RI and MA at this time.
