CSW stands for Community Supported Wellness and is based on many of the same principles as Community Supported Agriculture (CSA).
At the start of each season, beginning with Spring, you meet with Colleen Emery, whether on the phone, online or in person, to determine your unique health needs.
From this consultation 7 custom medicines are created with you and your family in mind. Along with your medicines comes home a learning bundle that helps grow and deepen your connection with the herb world. We include many extras throughout the program as well. 2017 includes an acupuncture treatment, iridology reading, free shipping and more.
Through the CSW program you will gain access to the herbal medicines necessary to encourage foundational wellness as well as the herbal education component designed to provide the tools needed to create the medicines yourself all within a sustainable, local, seasonal approach using the highest quality herbs, tinctures and essential oil products.
