SEASONAL REMEDIES + KNOWLEDGE SHARING
This sliding scale community medicine sharing project is in it's 5th year! The Herbshare is an herbal remedy subscription that runs monthly, in 4 month cycles. The upcoming winter cycle runs from December through March. Each month participants receive a collection of 4 different herbal remedies crafted from organic herbs that Tara is grew that season.
Each monthly Herbshare contains a lot of medicine! The amount of each remedy that comes in an Herbshare is enough for a month of daily use. Most folks find it to be so much medicine that they're able to both use the medicines, share with friends and also build up a well stocked home apothecary to have on hand when needed. Most of the remedies included will stay good for 2+ years and do not need refrigeration.
Each monthly Herbshare will include 4 freshly made remedies: A tea blend with 30+ servings, an elixir with at lest 48 servings and two other remedies that may be any of the following: tinctures, slow infused honeys and medicinal vinegars, infused massage oils, salves and balms, flower essences, herbal baths, body scrubs, foot soaks 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.
Each monthly Herbshare contains over $140 worth of remedies, offered on a 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 by delivery in downtown Tkaronto/Toronto or by mail throughout Canada.
Herbshares are available on a sliding scale.
Reduced rate for BIPOC community members.
Rates are in Canadian funds and include all tax.
The sliding scale is self determined and geared towards income, privilege and levels of access. It has been temporarily redesigned to reflect the financial impact that the pandemic is causing. If you have any questions about which rate is appropriate for you, get in touch. Below is a guide to help you decide where to place yourself on the sliding scales:
The supporter rate is intended for folks who are comfortable financially and who want to share the wealth. Accessing this rate creates more space for folks to receive an Herbshare at the solidarity rate. Salaried white folks are encouraged to pay at this rate whenever possible.
$140/month or $560/season
This is the regular rate. It is intended for those who receive income and/or have government support and who have access to savings, assets or family wealth. Salaried white folks are encouraged to pay at this rate whenever possible.
$120/month or $480/season
The middle of the scale is the reduced rate. It is intended for those who have some access to income and/or government support but who have no access to savings, assets or family wealth.
