Are you already a member of our fresh herb CSA? Great! You will enjoy this add-on of spring herbs to your share as there are many plants like nettle, cleavers, garlic mustard, knotweed shoots and chickweed that we only harvest at this time of year.
Not a member yet? Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a CSA member to get the spring share, however we would love if you joined us anyways!
How much is in a “bunch” of an herb? Sizes vary depending on availability but we like to give you enough of each herb to make medicine with. For example, for nettles we give out about a gallon size bag of tops. For dandelion root we will harvest a handful of roots.
