Clinic Hours Expanded

Great News:

Starting April 15, I am expanding my clinical hours to include two clinical days every week!

 

That’s double the availability to schedule health consultations!  Hopefully, this will get rid of the wait time for an appointment.

Garden Tip of the Month: Starting Medicinal Plants from Seed

Starting seeds is a cornerstone of my herbal practice, not to mention my sweet sideline as homestead queen.  I highly recommend growing this skill, as it quintuples your access to strange and interesting plants.  There is a great, wide, green world of herbs and flowers out there beyond the garden center, and it can be yours for a small investment in supplies, a bunch of practice, and the willingness to try again.  Here is an article on starting fussy medicinal plants that I hope you find helpful!

We Won!

I am so grateful to announce that our family farm, Riversong Farm in South Newfane, Vermont, has won an important regional business competition!  Last Wednesday we were awarded first place in the Windham Regional Business Plan Competition through Strolling of the Heifers, after presenting the business plan for our farm-to-table charcuterie line to a panel of judges.  The other finalists all have awesome businesses too, so it was an amazing surprise and we are so honored to have been chosen for first place.  The prize money will help us get our charcuterie products to customers and stores this fall, and we just can’t wait!

You can see the list of all the winners and finalists here.

Here is the link to our farm website, which is still under construction but will be updated this week.
