In the latest episode, I speak with Megan Wakefield the founder, herbalist, and gardener at Walking Wild Herbs, located in Shepherdstown, West Virginia at Walking Wild Herbs. Megan creates various blends and produces high-quality, balancing herbal teas that are formulated to support a healthy lifestyle. She also provides gardening education and consultations to help people bring fresh fruits and vegetables, herbs, and flowers into their own spaces. We discuss how she came to be an herbalist and how a long love inspired by her grandmother created a business she is passionate about, the importance and value of herbs to your diet and the medicinal benefits. How Megan creates her delicious teas and working with clients to customize ensures that organic and best practices applied for a high quality ingredients. Supporting local farms that grow the herbs needed for the teas and the importance of using locally grown ingredients improves the healthfulness.
