About Us

We are a family of six, living on our dream property of 3.6 acres in the woods, in a small coastal town in North Carolina, USA.

Along with perfecting our own gardens, which is a full time job by itself, Joe is also a Master Gardener volunteer for the County Extension in North Carolina and a professional gardener for his own set of personal clients, working very hard to provide for the family. He regularly maintains and creates beautiful gardens and landscaping for many homeowners in Hampstead, NC.
A dedicated daddy to his 4 little ones, and a caring and compassionate husband.

Dawn created and runs this Website, all of the online stores at eBay, Etsy, and LocalHarvest – filling orders, doing all the photography, handling customer service, and generally keeping everything in order. She also runs the household, cares for our 4 children, helps with gardens at home when needed, and folds a mean basket (or 5) of laundry.

To help others, we grow organic medicinal herbs and turn them into bottled, jarred, or bagged goodness. Some of the herbs are used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), other herbs are used in Ayurveda, but all are used to help bodies heal and maintain health.

Our plants are grown in very small batches to ensure their high quality. All plants used in our products and for the selling of seeds are grown organically and sustainably with no chemical herbicides or pesticides and with our very own hearty compost. We harvest each plant at their individual peak medicinal times.

Together we practice Whole Life Unschooling, gentle parenting, and organic living; constantly striving to be better than we were yesterday <3
