So much is happening here at Amazing Grace Wellness Connections. I thought it may be time to try to catch everyone up. Can I share a bit of our work with you?
This time of year is all about gardening for us, and hopefully you too! We want to be well and full of health and know how much growing our own food and medicine plays into that picture. As many of you know, we have been so blessed with a new, larger greenhouse and this year we are offering some of our good starters to you, for your garden. Plants are ready to go home any time and are already moving out at a rapid pace. I would dearly love to see you have some of this goodness in your gardens!
We are growing totally organic, from seeds to soil, every step, completely here on site. We don’t order our plants from out of state and hope they send us something that will grow here and still has a hint of health to it. Our plants never travel anywhere, grow in natural lighting in an un-heated greenhouse within organic, wholesome soil and fertilizer. This means they are HARDY for us right here in Nebraska. Our plants are all open pollinated/heirlooms so you are more then able to save your own seed for next year (or we’ll be happy to take care of that step for you, if you’d rather). No GMO’s or hybridized plants at all!
We are filled to the brim, and then some with veggies and culinary as well as medicinal herbs. There are a few plants that don’t want to be confined to those classifications, but we still love them too.
We also have some awesome, handmade, cedar birdhouses to add to your gardens (because we all know how beneficial those little birds are to help us control the insects that would otherwise destroy our plants. These houses weather beautifully outdoors but lend themselves to your youngsters involvement with a custom paint job as well.
There is a very limited supply of our organically produced honey available on the counter, at the office. Don’t even get me started about how crazy in love we are with our bees! I would love to share a conversation with you about how we tend to our little friends, so if your interested, just give me a shout.
Not wanting this to become to long, let me just share a few other items with you. I will be putting up some specifics about the wonderful food plants we are selling, right on this blog over the coming days. Keep watch to learn about some of the very rare and special plants available to you. There is a tab at the top of the site for “Plant Profiles” where you can find general planting information and usage facts for the herbs, both culinary and medicinal. We will be adding more and more information to that page just as soon as we can catch up with the physical work of growing the plants. In the mean time, we have “cheat” sheets hanging in the greenhouse for you. When you come out to shop, bring your phone and click a picture of any or all of them that hold an interest to you!
We are open from 7:30-7:30 Sunday through Friday, taking Saturday off to rest.
We are located in Sidney, Nebraska at the junction of Highways 385 and 30, northwest corner, at the Sleep For Less Motel — just look for the big blue greenhouse! You can phone us at 308-254-4009 if you need more information.
Okay, that covers the things you may want to know but. . . why. . . ?
Well, simple put, we have a vision to help as many people gain health and wellbeing as possible! We have a very dear place in our hearts for our local community! Put those two things together and this is a logical step in the right direction.
There is lots of great plans to follow this; workshops and clinics on topics such as “Kitchen Medicine” where you can join us to learn how those aromatic beauties that transform our meals can also transform our health, during illness/disease as well as preventatively. Other subjects will be announced later but keep watch for details here. An “Herb Walk and Talk” will be coming to you in June, where we will tour the grounds here and look over both the garden plants and natives in order to learn more about what and how to grow in our area. So many plans, it can make you dizzy. We are hoping to share our harvest with the elderly and shut-ins of the community, lend a hand to your garden work with whatever knowledge we may be able to share and watch our neighborhood glow with health!
Please share us with all you know, it makes all the hard work so much more worth it, if we can meet any needs you have, please be sure to let us know. Take a little time to look over the site, there is lots of help for you. By signing up for our e-mail updates, you will receive a copy of my essay on Herbal Infused Honey, with that information and a visit to our greenhouse, you will be well on your way to taking some positive action for yours and your families health. Thank you so much for supporting our work and our vision! It’s neighbors like you all that make this an awesome community to live in!!
