About our guest:
Ayla Miner, herbwyfe, priestess, earth lover, dancer, wild-crafter and a woman re-wilding, is passionate about practices that nourish the body and spirit.
As the owner of Chrysalis Woman, (a growing Herb Farm and Goddess Sanctuary) located in the township of Paloma in Calaveras County, Ayla grows, harvests and handcrafts organic herbal medicines, holds monthly women’s circles and teaches seasonal wellness workshops in whole foods, ferments and herbal healing. This year she started the first CSH program (Community Supported Herbalism) in the area with the hopes of providing local medicines from the land she calls home. Based on the CSA model (Community Supported Agriculture), which unites farmers with the local community… Ayla seeks to create the same supportive relationships when it comes to medicine. CSH members lend their financial support in exchange for monthly medicine shares. Each share contains a selection of teas, bulk herbs, salves, infused oils, syrups and extracts. All medicines are made by hand and the majority are grown with organic and biodynamic methods. Those that aren’t grown in the Chrysalis Woman Farm are either ethically wild-crafted or purchased from quality herbal suppliers.
In an effort to expand awareness on the beauty of local not just in the food we eat, but in the medicine that grows naturally in our region, Ayla teaches seasonally based workshops, guiding the local community back to a relationship with the Earth, the medicines She so abundantly provides and works toward the creation of a sustainable, local health care system.
