The Nursery


Another facet of our work at the Medicine Garden is getting people plant starts to grow their own medicine. One thing we found is that with a small urban plot you can’t come close to growing all your own food, but you may be able to grow all your own medicine! But to do so you may need some plant starts. That is where we come in.

While medicinal plants starts are growing in popularity there are still some that are hard to come by. Plus with our small-scale nursery devoting its energy almost exclusively to medicinals you can be sure that our plants were properly raised with an eye toward quality medicine. Below you will find a complete list of the plants we are hoping to offer in 2016. Please feel free to contact us to get the latest on availability.

We sell most of our plants via pop-ups. Sorta like a Tupperwear party where you host an event in your yard and invite your community. We will bring along some plants to sell and offer a free one-hour garden class and tour in your yard! That way you end up essentially getting a free garden consultation. We are also happy to throw in $25 in plant starts for your work too. Contact us today if you’d like to host.
