Herbs and Spices
With over 250 herbs, we aim to provide a space for our community to be curious and creative with their health and herbs. Our Bulk Department is determined to make the wonderful world of herbal medicine accessible to everyone interested in learning and using herbs. We want to provide a space for the public to be more connected to the natural world around us by giving them access to the best quality herbs one can find.
* The bulk section is also a great way to use less packaging, thus creating less waste to go to our landfills.
We love working with local farms, and bringing fresh, vibrant plant allies into the city where the people need it most. We aim to find wild crafted and organically grown herbs whenever we can. We work closely with our suppliers to guarantee the best quality herbs that anyone can find in the area. Sustainability is of utmost importance, so is fair working conditions.
