Growing herbs, making magic on an urban farm in Nashville, TN

Farming and plant magic are my passions, both gifts I learned from my great- grandmother. I grew up with her in my life every day. She taught me the importance of growing your own and using the gifts from the earth to heal. I remember making my first poultice with her, and eating poke salat every spring.

In 2010, my bones were aching to reconnect with nature after spending many years at a desk job in the natural foods industry. We started our first garden, got some chickens, and started making all our families skin and body care needs that year. It was an amazing year of learning and excitement, but I wanted more! Soon after, I started studying in the Wise Woman Tradition and expanded to creating herbal teas, tinctures, and elixirs. Each year we grew and in 2014, I quit my day job to farm and practice my herbal passion full-time calling ourselves Double N Urban Farm and Apothecary. Over the past 4 growing seasons, we have offered a vegetable CSA, herbal CSA, attended farmers markets, and hosted workshops.

Now we are on to our next chapter, we are turning our entire 1/2 acre vegetable farm into a 100% organic medicinal herb farm, and this is the birth of Stomping Ground Herbals. We will be offering more herbal wellness than ever before and my heart is bursting with joy!

We look forward to exploring the wilderness with you!
