SEASONAL REMEDIES + KNOWLEDGE SHARING

 

The Herbshare is a sliding scale herbal remedy subscription that runs monthly for six months from June through November. Each month participants receive a collection of 4 freshly made remedies and herbal delights crafted from homegrown organic herbs. The amount is enough for a month of daily use and most remedies will stay good for up to 2 years. Some of the treats you can find in an Herbshare include: Fresh elixirs, tinctures, infused honeys and medicinal vinegars, infused massage oils, salves and balms, flower essences, dried tea blends, herbal bath satchels, body scrubs, foot soaks and smoking mixtures, to name a few! Throughout the year you can support your wellness and build yourself a home apothecary with safe and effective remedies crafted by an experienced medicine maker.

Each Herbshare contains over $140 worth of remedies which is offered on a much reduced sliding scale. Every Herbshare comes with thorough information about all of the herbs and remedies featured that month. This knowledge sharing is based in Tara's depth of experience and skill as a traditionally and clinically trained herbalist who has been in community practice for over 15 years. This knowledge sharing includes detailed information of how the herbs work in our bodies, how and when to work with the remedies, appropriate dosage information, safety precautions in regards to potential interactions with medications and health conditions, traditional Irish lore, as well as personal stories of growing the medicines and creating the remedies. 

 Herbshares are available for pickup at the Dufferin Grove Farmers Market in Tkaronto's west end on the first Thursday of each month, or they can be mailed anywhere in Canada/USA. Postage costs differ by location, please inquire for details.

 

Herbshares are available on a sliding scale:

$78-$108 per month for six months

or  $468-$648 for the full six months

(prices include all taxes)

Further reduced rate for BIPOC folks:

$68-$108 per month for six months

or  $408-$648 for the full six months 

(prices include all taxes)

This sliding-scale is self determined, geared towards income, privilege and levels of access.

Please get in contact with any questions about which rate is appropriate for you and make

sure to read the following for ideas about where to place yourself on this sliding-scale:

The top of the scale is the regular rate. It is intended for those who are middle class, who receive a salary and/or who have access to family wealth. White settler folks are encouraged to pay this rate whenever possible as it directly creates access to the lowest end of the scale.

The middle of the sliding-scale is the reduced rate which is intended for those who are working class, who have dependants, who fall somewhere between the low end and the high end of the scale.

The lowest end of the scale
is the solidarity rate. It is intended for folks who make minimum wage, who are cash-poor and without family financial support. This lowered rate is directly subsidized by the higher rate on the scale so a limited number of spaces are available. Priority goes to BIPOC folks, single parents and folks living with disabilities.
