OUR MISSION is to educate, stimulate, empower, and support people and the plants by offering the highest quality herbal products, something for the novice herbalist to the hardcore ethnobotanist. Drink menu at the bar includes teas, coffee, shrubs, elixirs, oxymels, and sparkling and fermented wonders. Come in and warm yourself by the fire and enjoy something you never tasted and shop for herbal oddity to share with loved ones.
