Spoonful Herbals organizes medicinal plant gleaning events or "Herb Mobs" throughout the growing season and around the region to harvest plentiful wild plants, surplus herb crops or unwanted "weeds" on local farms. They are then dried or processed into medicine for educational use and/or community health access through places like the Railyard Apothecary, Burlington Herb Clinic and VCIH Community Herb Clinics.
We enthusiastically seek help from volunteers with these efforts! Please follow our Herb Mob Facebook Page to hear the call for help when its needed! These can be spur of the moment, when the plants decide its time to bloom or ripen! In 2017, we hope to schedule some regular harvest events during the peak of the summer season.
If you would like to offer us the chance to harvest on your land or farm, or offer your group of volunteers, please reach out to us with an email!
* Please note that donations of already harvested plants can not be accepted however, as we must be sure that each plant has been properly identified by a trained herbalist and harvested from a suitable location.
