Founded in 2008, Mothering Herbs is a combination of a mother and daughter effort.
Ginger is a Master Gardener and has 48+ years experience with herbs and organic gardening. She moved to the Middle Tennessee homestead, where she currently lives, in 1977 with her husband to raise and home school two children without running water or electricity for ten years. In this location they along continue to use organic practices in their herb and vegetable garden.
Summer grew up gardening and exploring the natural world first with her parents and later as an Outward Bound Instructor. She now farms using organic practices with her husband and two young children in North-West Alabama. She has a Bachelors Degree in Biology/History Education with a Masters degree in History from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Summer is currently taking an Herbal Educator Course (400 hours) with Aviva Romm M.D., Herbalist and Midwife and has taken Webinars and Computer based courses with SevenSong and David Winston along with studying her continually growing library of herbal books.
In 2007 Ginger became a grandmother for the first time and Summer, her daughter, became a mother. While helping her daughter journey through her first pregnancy, birth and care of her first child, Ginger found the thirty-three years of herbal experience she had from growing culinary and medicinal herbs was very useful. They also found that there was limited local and fresh herbal resources for midwives, pregnant women and families. Based on this they decided to start Mothering Herbs.
Mothering herbs has since expanded to include organic herbs, herbal products, consultations, workshops, blessingways, school/homeschool educational programs, and herb walks. Most recently, a Community Supported Herbalism program was created and has pickup locations in Florence and Huntsville. Summer is also working with Ashley Baker Haselton of Ashley Baker Yoga to offer hiking, backpacking and yoga trips in North Alabama and North Georgia.
Ginger has decided to play a background roll in the business. She is still part of Mothering Herbs but enjoys growing, learning about herbs, and being a resource for Summer, rather than out in the front and center of the business.
Summer Ware McCreless manages the website and facebook page, orders, makes the infused oil and balms, mixes the herbal tea blends, organizes and teaches workshops, classes, consultations, blessingways, and grows herbs in Wolf Springs, AL. She will be happy to create an custom hand crafted herbal order for you!
We hope you will come grow with us!
