Posted: February 7th, 2014 | Author: admin | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

Last week I was interviewed on NPR’s the Roundtable with host Joe Donahue about my recent herbal wellness seminar at Verdigris Tea & Chocolate Bar in Hudson, NY. Joe tried his first Good Fight Herb Co. products on air while discussing their health supportive benefits and I was stoked to leave a bunch of herbal care products for the WAMC staff. They do such great work! Take a listen to the interview here.


thank you, herbal aide!

Herbal Aide gave us a grant! Oh, what excitement and gratitude we have!

Herbal Aide is an amazing non-profit founded by Mary Blue of Farmacy Herbs, that works to document, inspire and fund grassroots herbal projects and businesses working towards creating positive, sustainable social change. YES!

Mary and co-filmmaker, Kim, created a beautiful documentary that highlights such projects around the country. Through the fundraising efforts of this film, as well as the 2013 Rad Herb Revival and Convergence, Mary and Herbal Aide were able to raise funds to provide grants to support the work that herbalists are doing within their communities.

We are so honored to be 1 of 3 recipients of this amazing grant! Thank you, Herbal Aide! Gosh, there’s so much we can do with this grant, and we’ll keep you all posted on what we make happen.

Hearty congrats to August of Fireweed Herbals and Kelly, Jocelyn and Lroy of The Stone House Wellness Collective for also receiving the grant. And thank you for all the work y’all do!


rad health radio w/ blades natural beauty

Posted: October 11th, 2013 | Author: admin | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

Recently on our radio program, Roots, Runners, Rhizomes : Health & Healing from the Underground, we were joined by natural beauty expert, women’s health advocate and herbalist, Jessa Blades of Blades Natural Beauty. What a show! It was astounding to learn of the types of toxins present in beauty products, unregulated and therefore allowed by the FDA, that have the potential to cause great harm to those using them. Really powerful and important information here. Jessa speaks volumes to how women can access alternatives and what to look out for in choosing health and beauty products.

Tune in here.

This radio show, co-hosted by Sarah Falkner and myself, airs every 4th Monday of the month from 2-3pm on WGXC 90.7FM, community hands on radio for Columbia and Greene counties. The show is available on your FM dial and for live streaming, and can also be accessed through the archives for later listening.
