Friday Finds – The Potager

Posted at 9:05 am on September 7, 2018

I’ve always loved plants and flowers and I know they have a lot of benefits to people.  But I didn’t realize to what a great extent until I stumbled across The Potager!  Founded by local bioregional clinical herbalist, Rachel Berndt, the Potager truly harnesses the power of plants through a variety of different services.  Rachel offers herbal workshops and plant walks throughout the year, personal consultations and private events and a plethora of herbal remedies for every imaginable need – available through her apothecary.   
 
Rachel’s small batch herbal remedies include things such as herbal extracts, flower essences, elixirs, infused oils and more! Each is consciously foraged, grown in Iowa or sourced from responsible, high-quality sources here in the USA.  What a fun and interesting way to explore plants and how we can benefit from them. And hey – maybe there is an elixir that helps relieve unnecessary stress from moving house! 
 
Just a reminder, Friday Finds is a way to show people the best local places to visit or experience. If you have one you love and want the world to know about, please let me know so I can include it!
