recipes

There is an Ayurvedic proverb which reminds us that “when diet is wrong, medicine is of no use. When diet is correct, medicine is of no need.” Food truly is medicine. We love incorporating herbs into our daily fare and we know that you will too!  Not only are medicinal herbs flavorful and incredibly nutrient-dense, but by including them intelligently in our diets, we are giving ourselves the best preventative healthcare possible.  All of our ancestors consumed herbs regularly in one form or another and as a result our bodies know how to recognize and assimilate their medicinal compounds with ease.  Look forward recipes that are seasonally focused, simple to prepare. and free of major allergens.  We can’t wait to share our favorites with you!

medicine tales

Stories are a medicine all their own. They are are one of the most powerful tools we have for learning about ourselves, the plants, and the world around us. Our Souls require story and myth to nourish them just as our bodies require food. Storytelling is also one of the most ancient forms of teaching. Though story we are able to communicate information in a way that is memorable and engaging as well as entertaining!  Each month you’ll receive poetry and prose to nourish and inspire the wild self and soul.

 

So, Is There Really A Garden Party?

Yes! Part of the reason we created Garden Party was to bring together likeminded folks near + far in the spirit of connection and celebration. As a member of Garden Party you’ll receive invitations to a small handful of seasonal in-person Gatherings. Each Garden Party will be an enchanted evening filled with heavenly cocktails + wildcrafted teas, botanical wonderment such as floral foot soaks, mini-plant walks, flower essence journeys, and general merriment. Like seeds to the wind, you never know where we’ll spring up next.
