Done. 6 cubic yards of biodynamic, fully alive, earth friendly, unheated and untreated except by Mother Nature, locally produced mulch has been applied to some areas of our beautiful #westernreserveherbsociety gardens down @clegarden . Exhausted but happy to be a part of an organization that is doing their part to help advance local businesses that are doing their part to make the planet a healthier and happier one. #permaculture #biodynamic #motherearth #mulch #mulching #dirt #soil #soilamendments

What an wonderful day we had at one of our WRHS homes. Not only did we bask in the transcendent beauty of her lovingly created gardens, but we watched a wonderful demonstration where we learned to make a delicious peanut butter spread, a cranberry , sage and cinnamon holiday jelly and a lavender lemon jelly. Her beautiful cat River joined us as well. Love the fellowship of this amazing group of women. #westernreserveherbsociety #gardening #jelly #jam #preserves #herbanfarmgirl #flowers #landscape #herbsocietyofamerica

This always amazes me. 4 days worth of harvesting and drying have produced almost two gallons of the loveliest , velvetiest unsprayed rose petals . Some of these will be made into rose and raspberry jam and some will be put into cellophane bags and tied with pretty ribbons just like they do in Paris, to be used at your whim in teas, potpourris , cakes and cookies. They will be for sale at our annual #westernreserveherbsociety annual herb fair... held this year on Saturday, October the 13th @clegarden #rose #rosewitch #gardening #herbanfarmgirl @herbanmonk #herbanmonk #bethschreibmangehring #manifest #lawofattraction #herbanwedding #herbanmagic #herbanmagic 🌸💋🍀 #lifesmagic #herbs

Spent the loveliest afternoon with @kathleengips who made such a beautiful tea for us. Aren’t these sandwiches topped with heartsease and violas just so beautiful? Homemade chicken salad, egg salad and filled soft cheese. The homemade scones were amazingly creamy and served with a pineapple sage jelly. Everything was so beautifully presented ...

We began working on Tuesday down at our glorious Western Reserve Herb Society gardens, housed within the @clegarden . Such a extraordinarily beautiful day. We’re beginning our clean up work but we’re doing it slowly, keeping most of the soil covered so it does not bleach or over oxygenate, utilizing biodynamic wisdom and horticultural best practices, which in truth are not “ new” at all. Just a return to common sense, letting natures inherent wisdom be our guide! Here in Cleveland, our last potential frost date is May 7th which is why we are keeping most of the cover on the soil, even though there is bloom. Although it’s not quite as “pretty”, uncovering and exposing the soil before a frost risks killing off many of the living organisms that we rely on to keep our soil fresh, friable and luscious. It’s a small price to pay for an abundant harvest later on in the season. #westernreserveherbsociety #herbsocietyofamerica #gardening #garden #permaculture #phenology #biodynamicfarming #herbanfarmgirl #herbanglow #redecoratingthesoul #redecoratingthesoul @herbanmonk #bethschreibmangehring #lifestylecoach #wellness #wellnesscoach #gratitude #lawofattraction #manifestation #manifest #joy #blessed 🙏 🌿🌸🌺🌹🍀🐿💋 #bandj30daysofjoy

Delectable orbs of amazing sweet tartness for your holiday table! Crystallized cranberries, cooked in sugar water syrup for a few minutes, dried for about an hour and rolled in superfine sugar. Air dry until crunchy! Who needs candy? I didn’t make these but trust me, they are so easy and they’ll look gorgeous on your table! From today’s WRHS Holiday Tea. #cranberry #cranberries #xmas #christmasfood #christmastime #westernreserveherbsociety

You CAN learn something new everyday! This is the harvested fruit of the beautiful Kousa Dogwood, a plant native to Korea, China and Japan. 🌱and until this morning when I was working in the gardens I didn't realize it was edible. It has large seeds, but once you get past those, you get a sweet and luscious almost oily creamy pulp that I literally wanted to spread on my skIn. I did further research and discovered that this fruit is a wonderful collagen promoter and a great source of vitamin C. so into my fall smoothies and face masks it goes! It's also supposed to be very good for helping to control blood sugar... as with all new things, do your research first, talk to your Dr. And don't just take my word for it. Don't be afraid to try it though for it's a beautiful foraged fruit! #foraging #vegancollagen #iwivip #kousadogwood #fruit #herbsocietyofamerica #westernreserveherbsociety

Thrilled to have been asked by the Case Western Reserve Universities Dittrick Medical Library and Museum to be a part of this wonderful conversation where we discussed the history of Herbal Kitchen Medicine! I made the treats shown here black raspberry, Sage, lemon balm and rose jam, Herb Butter with spearmint, Chervil, shallots, thyme and truffles and a peach, walnut and pineapple salsa! And... I finally got to meet an old friend @taraegon_studio from around the Perfume Blogosphere what a great evening!... #iwivip #HappySolstice #summersolstice #westernreserveherbsociety #herbanfarmer #herbanfarmgirl #chutney
