Hello Spiraea Supporters!
I hope everyone enjoyed the first day of summer! It is so lovely to spend time outdoors.
As many of you are aware, I am finishing up my last year at Living Earth School. As part of my requirements for graduation, I need to make fresh herb tinctures for clinic. My teacher has come out with a list of herbs that he needs for this summer and unfortunately I don’t have any harvesting locations for any of them. I am hoping that you fine folks might be able to help me.
If you happen to know of a farm or other location (in Southern Ontario) where I could find some of the following herbs to harvest I would be so very grateful.
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
Indian tobacco (Lobelia inflata)
Wild mint (Mentha arvensis)
Peppermint (Mentha x pipertia)
Bergamot (Monarda fistulosa)
Stinging Nettle (Urtica dioica)
I will require the herbs in fairly large quantities – a minimum of 100 grams – so please keep that in mind.
If you happen to know anyone who might be able to help me please feel free to forward this email to them.
Thank you to all of you. I appreciate any help you may be able to give.
