Permaculture design brings all the elements in your landscape together to create a harmonious whole.
— Michael Judd
In addition, I see healing with plants as an act of social justice, as something all should have access to in our communities near and far. Since January 2016 I have learned from and partnered with Dr. Dawson Farr, a Naturopathic Doctor who has worked for the last four years in Nicaragua. Together we continue to advance the idea of "farm to clinic" natural medicine - a project that aims to build capacity for farmers to sustainably cultivate, harvest, produce and use medicinal plants - in the form of teas, tinctures, and capsules - so that Nicaraguans can have access to affordable, safe, natural medicine.   Locally, I hope to ultimately offer some services and products at a sliding scale with the intention of greater access in mind. I also aim to supply herbal products to movement builders and activists.

Nature teaches us to be flexible yet intentional. My hope for poppysol is that it will follow this model. I aim to have a consistent source of herbs, grown and harvested by my hands, in my blends. However, to accommodate the needs of my community and the changing landscape we all live within, I know that I will need to link to other sources as well. For now, the herbs are grown in Hillsborough, NC and as I transition to Chatham County, my farm will implement permaculture design, a style of farming that again mirrors nature.  

 

Where possible, I will source from other local herb farmers and connect to herb exchanges in other parts of the country to draw from herbs that do not grow in my zone. If you are interested in an exchange, please be in touch!
