Sign up for an herb share to receive 10 weeks of fresh herbs!

This year, the Blandford Farm is partnering with Camilla Voelker for the herb CSA!

Camilla has worked for the Land Conservancy of West Michigan in a temporary stewardship position where she surveyed and mapped invasive species in delicate Michigan dune ecosystems. After her time with the land conservancy, she became an Urban Gardener for two local non-profits, Well House and Our Kitchen Table where she grew food in areas considered food deserts. With an interest in herbalism, she studied plant medicine with Jim McDonald in 2014 and then again with Dr. Lori Rose in 2019. Camilla has taken an interest in herbalism and native wildflower gardening. She has hosted plant walks in her community and other educational workshops on topics such as food garden planning and mushroom growing. She has become a member of United Plant Savers, Herbalism Without Borders and River City Wild Ones. 

Herb CSA Members will receive 4 bunches of fresh herbs each week for 10 weeks.  Herb selections will focus on culinary staples such as dill, cilantro, basil, parsley, and sage, while also featuring medicinal plants such as plantain, milky oats, and bee balm.  

Participants will receive a mini booklet at the beginning of their share with instructions for preserving and using herbs.  These will include drying, making infused oils and vinegars, and more!

You will receive a weekly newsletter with suggested recipes and preservation methods for your herbs that will emphasize techniques outlined in the mini booklet. 

Pick up options are: Tuesdays at the farm from 4:00-6:30pm, and Fridays and Saturdays at the Fulton Street Farmers Market from 8:00am-1:00pm.  

If you have any questions about your registration, you can email the Farm Manger at liz@blandfordnaturecenter.org
