We love our local vendors! Our August local vendor is HARTWOOD HERBALS. Hartwood Herbals was started by Community Herbalist and Functional Medicine Practitioner Aron McNicholas as a dedication to his Great-Grandmother, Mary Hartman. Aron began his herbalism journey by studying with Indiana’s own Constance Ferry of Hobbit Gardens. Later, he went on to study with 7Song at the Northeastern School of Botanical Medicine and with other experts such as Sam Thayer, Adam Harrington, and many more. More recently, Aron has attended the University of Western States for his master’s degree in Functional Medicine and Nutrition. Hartwood Herbals is proud to offer wildcrafted and locally grown herbal products at Georgetown Market. Wildcrafting is the practice of harvesting herbs ethically from nature. This avoids the industrialization, processing, and impersonalization that comes with mass marketing and ensures the energetic quality of the plants. Aron currently teaches classes at Georgetown Market, conducts local plant walks, compounds herbal formulas, and offers one-on-one consultations. Hartwood Herbals six tinctures include Milky Oats, Mushroom Blend, Pain Blend, Immune Blend, Barberry, and Nervine Glycerite for $13.99 each. Try the new Seasonal Tea blend for $19.99. If you’re interested in connecting with Aron, please reach out to him at email@example.com.
