SEASONAL REMEDIES + KNOWLEDGE SHARING
The 2022 summer Herbshare is the 7th year of this community medicine sharing project! The Herbshare is a monthly herbal remedy subscription, offered at reduced sliding scale rates, that runs in 3 month cycles. The current Herbshare cycle runs from July through September 2022. Each month participants receive a collection of 3 different herbal remedies, in generous portions, crafted from organic herbs grown that season. This 7th year of Summer Herbshares features some special edition herbal medicines gathered this spring in Ireland. Participants will learn about the herbs and remedies, as very thorough information about all of the herbs and remedies featured that month is included.
Each monthly Herbshare contains a lot of medicine! Most participants find that they're able to both regularly use the remedies and also build up a well stocked home apothecary to have on hand when needed. Most of the remedies included will be viable for 5+ years and do not need refrigeration.
Each monthly Herbshare includes 3 freshly made remedies: A large tincture or elixir and two other remedies that may be any of the following: tea blends, slow infused honeys and medicinal vinegars, infused massage oils, salves and balms, flower essences, herbal baths and smoking mixtures, to name a few! Throughout the season you can deeply support your wellness and build yourself a home apothecary with safe and effective remedies grown and crafted by an experienced medicine maker.
The Herbshare is designed to share in depth knowledge about all of the herbs featured each month and each share contains thorough information about all of the herbs and remedies featured that month. 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, Irish medicine traditions and lore, as well as personal stories of growing the medicines, creating the remedies and the particular ways in which I witness the medicines supporting people through the work that I do with clients and community.
Herbshares are available on a sliding scale.
Reduced rates for BIPOC community members.
Rates are in Canadian funds and include all tax.
This sliding scale structure is based in mutual aid and solidarity. It is self determined and geared towards income, privilege and levels of access. It has been redesigned to reflect the financial impact that the pandemic has had and is having on many of us. If you have any questions about which rate is appropriate, please get in touch. Below is a guide to help you decide where to place yourself on the scale:
The supporter rate is intended for folks who understand the importance of sharing the wealth. Accessing this rate directly creates space at the solidarity rate. White folks who receive a salary and/or who receive health benefits are encouraged to select this rate.
$180/month or $540/full season
This is the regular rate. It is intended for those who receive income and/or have government financial support and/or have access to savings, assets or family wealth. White folks are encouraged to select this rate or the supporter rate whenever possible.
$150/month or $450/full season
This is the reduced rate. It is intended for those who have limited access to income and/or government financial support, who have no access to savings, assets or family wealth. BIPOC folks will be prioritized for this rate. White folks who receive health benefits at are asked not to select this rate.
