ABOUT HALF MOON HERBALS
Our Farm and Apothecary
We are a small team of passionate Community Herbalists and Ecological Farmers, going into our third year of growing western medicinal herbs on the beautiful north end of Kootenay Lake. Our farm is split between the Lakehead & Beyond Farmers Cooperative where we team up with organic farmer Michael Silver from Earth Temple Gardens to create a 'living art' farm of mixed-veggie and medicinal herbs (see us from the road in Meadow Creek)! We also have gardens at the end of the road, in Johnsons Landing, where many of our mixed perennial stands are located.
Growing and gathering medicinal herbs to nourish and support the health of our community, is what drives us. We believe that access to medicinal herbs should be as secure as access to healthy food, and are therefore focused on ensuring a LOCAL supply to practicing herbalists, herbal tea/body-care product manufacturers, and home-scale remedy makers. We also understand that herbal medicine is 'the peoples medicine', and we welcome ways to share what we've learned and collaborate with others on the path of connecting to life and land.
All the remedies made in our apothecary are from herbs grown in our gardens or wild-harvested from healthy local stands. We celebrate the use of herbal remedies in preventative and integrative medicine.
