Native plants and trees are an important part of the work we are doing at The Spring House, including incorporating at-risk medicinal plants, as we are able to access them ethically.
Many of the “weeds” growing in our yard also have medicinal value, and we use them and other herbs that we are growing to create tinctures, teas, and salves.
We are proud to have become part of the United Plant Savers Botanical Sanctuary Network in 2019. This network of medicinal botanical sanctuaries was established throughout the country, to not only serve as rich depositories for ‘at risk’ North American medicinal plants, but also to serve as educational centers for plant conservation and organic cultivation.
In 2021 we are working on our outdoor classroom and hope to resume classes there in the Fall. This area in called The Meadow and is the area that we are rewilding on our property.
