The Herbal Aide documentary features herbalists who are using their passion for plants as a tool to support their communities.

The film features many well known herbal activists doing non-profit work, disaster relief, community clinics and more. The documentary was produced and edited by Herbalist/ Farmer, Mary Blue of Farmacy Herbs in Providence.

Chrysalis is a solo music project of Herbalist/Farmer Musician Eli Weaver of Lancaster Farmacy.  Eli is a vocalist, plays guitar, banjo, piano and autoharp. She writes songs that touch on personal transformation, connection to place, oppression and liberation, and finding balance in life. She is releasing her new album, To Be Free on this winter tour.

Typically both Mary and Eli are busy running community herbal programs and farms.  This winter they are carving out time to take their creative projects on tour and share them with the larger community.

The tour will generate dialogue about community health issues, access to holistic health care and share hope and inspiration through original music and the work of many herbal activists.
