Whether you're decking the halls, lighting the menorah, preparing for a feast, or hibernating this time of year, I wanted to make sure you knew about all the great gifts from The WANDER School - this is a small yet mighty woman-owned and operated business that exists to inspire nature reconnection and health empowerment.
So, for anyone on your list who is wild food or herb curious...look no further.
It's never too early to start planning your holiday gift giving, and with Small Business Saturday right around the corner we wanted to get you thinking about gifts we have available. Read on, let us know if you have any questions, and as always...green blessings.
If you are a super-generous plan-ahead kind of gift-giver..
...and you know (or you ARE) someone that wants to learn in person the art of Appalachian plantcraft, folk herbalism and wild foraging...
You're in luck because enrollment is now open for The Sassafras School of Appalachian Plantcraft 2020, a collaboration of Abby Artemisia and Becky Beyer for students to learn the folk ways .

"We recently had Abby out to our property in Marshall, NC for a spring time botanical survey and we found over 83 species in under 3 hours! Abby was extremely knowledgable and made learning about the plants fun and tasty! She also offered up a wide variety of uses as well as recipes for many of the edibles we discovered. We are already planning visits with Abby for each of the seasons to see what other treasures are just waiting to reveal themselves. If you are looking to learn more about the bounty that awaits you right outside your door and have a spirit for adventure, we highly recommend you give Abby a call, we’re sure glad we did!"
