CSCH is thrilled to begin the process of creating an Herbal Healing Center at Elderberry’s, a delightful 4-acre farm in Paonia, Colorado! Experience traditional Nature Cure and Vitalist therapeutics among the gardens, herb beds, fruit trees, and wildlands nearby. Beginning in the Summer of 2017, the farm will be hosting workshops, immersions and events to help you reconnect with the healing powers of Nature and to expand your knowledge of earth-based medicines. Elderberry’s is a place to rest, learn, heal, rejuvenate and connect in community.

 

The Farm

Elderberry’s is home to a charming, periwinkle-blue 1908 farmhouse, graced with Peach, Plum, and Apple trees, where chickens roam among organic vegetable and herb gardens. Our botanical sanctuary is on the edge of town, in a quiet, peaceful, expansive landscape. It’s the perfect place to shed the chaos of city life and recharge your vitality. Eat fresh food right from the plentiful gardens and rest in the camping meadow under brilliant stars! Find yourself at home amongst healing waters, where the Minnesota creek and mountain snowmelt converge to nourish the land and soothe the mind, body and spirit.
 
 

The Land

This breathtaking landscape is surrounded by an expanse of mountains and mesas, with clear air and pure mountain water. Sage and Juniper grow in wild abundance among other fragrant plants and wildflowers. Elderberry’s is located on the edge of Paonia, in the North Fork Valley, an area known for its fertile, volcanic soil that supports the abundant growth of organic fruits and vegetables. This unique micro-climate is often compared to the Provence region of southeast France, as the valley mimics coastal Mediterranean terrain. Paonia is home to the highest concentration of organic farms in the state – truly a haven for plant-lovers, gardeners, herbalists and healers!
