Medicine Share

For those of you who have supported the CSM in the past, we hope you have enjoyed the shares, and we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Our herbs are brimming with vitality and new choices are being added to the share every season!

For those at a distance, purchasing a share also helps support our training programs that teach people how to establish grassroots herbal healthcare models in their own communities. Until every community has their own Herbal CSM we will happily ship shares as needed.

What is an Herbal Medicine Share?

Inspired by the model of Community Supported Agriculture, we offer herbs, spices, and herbal products organically grown on our farm directly to our members. The shares contain herbs and remedies for a host of commonly encountered conditions such as colds, flus, sore throats, coughs, digestive issues, sleep improvement, skin conditions, children’s health, and more.

When you purchase a share, it helps support the work we do growing and processing the herbs into useful natural medicines that nourish the body and enhance vitality. In return, you will receive a variety of herbs that support good health and the health of the environment, while also preserving the agricultural character of our wonderful community.

Available any time of the year and at any distance! During the growing season, shares are divided into two separate pickup dates. During the scheduled pickup at the farm in Conway, members get to "meet the plants" that comprise their share and there will be a short educational session about how best to use the herbs provided in that month's share. For those who choose to get the share during other times of the year, or for those who need it shipped, we are happy to include information about what is contained in your share.



Share Sizes
o   LARGE: enough for a family of 3-4, or to share among a group of friends. ($250)

o   SMALL: suitable for an individual or a family just beginning to learn about herbs and spices. ($150)
