Local Herb Faire

why local plants? Why local people?

The Missing Link

The Elderberry Apothecary emerged in 2018 to achieve greater health both with our human community and within our ecosystem by cultivating relations with local medicinal plants. 

When we restore one, we bring balance to both.  
We invite the entire community to lean into this vision with us.


The First Annual

Local Plant Faire

Join us on June 2, 2018 from 10 am - 4 pm at the One Mile Recreation Area (Oak Grove A) in Bidwell Park, Chico, CA.  The event is free and open to all. 

Learn about what our land has to offer at workshops led by leading herbalists in our community.  Stock up on fresh, herbal medicine, teas, and medicinal plant starts from local herbalists. Check out the awesome community organizations that we've partnered with as well. 

Don't miss the Highlight of the Faire at 11am~ a traditional Haitian Medicine Dance!

Stay tuned for updates about food and live music!

Herbalists & Partners

We are thrilled to feature our community's offerings of handcrafted herbal medicine from local herbalists.  We are also thrilled to partner with local organizations such as Weaving Women's Wisdom Gathering, and more to be announced. 

It’s not just land that is broken, but more importantly, our relationship to land.
