You can pick and store your harvest in the wild community harvest freezer. This harvest will then be processed later in the month.

Making Echinacea Root Tincture

Today I made my first Echinacea Root Tincture – from plants I had sown from seed over three years ago. I can’t tell you what it meant to me. When I sowed those seeds I had no idea what would emerge. I didn’t know if I’d go back to prison, if Mum & Ian would want me at Brook End past my license, if I’d ever see these little seeds come to life at all.

But they have, and they have rooted in the medicine garden I built with all the love and intention I could muster. It was a very sacred day today!
