Local plants, local people.
The Pickens Herbalist Guild ties together a group bound by the roots of a community in North Georgia. Membership has no residency requirements – we have folks from Ellijay, Atlanta, Gainesville.
Not all of us are from here – but we got here as fast as we could. We love this place and we especially love its soil, and the plants that grow in it.
We meet monthly, usually in Jasper, to share knowledge and experience about plants that are medicinal (and sometimes edible, too). We make tinctures, teas, salves and other healing goodies, and we talk about how we have used these treatments.
This website is just another place to meet during the times between seeing each other.
