We Need the Tonic of Wildness 

~ Henry David Thoreau


First and foremost, Sacred Roots is a SANCTUARY... for those that fly, hop, bzzz, crawl,  slither, howl, grow, and blossom, and for the human kind as well.

Wild spaces are ( and have always been) Precious, and that's why when we encounter them we feel a visceral, ancestral, heart based remembrance of who we are and how intricately connected  we are to the whole. Sacred Roots is just such a place. Whether you are wanting to meet and learn about the healing plants and how to cultivate biodiversity, buy plant friends to take home, connect with community, or just unplug and find some inner peace, clarity or rejuvenation, this land is here for YOU.

"Sacred Roots Herbal Sanctuary is a place where...

people can slow down, reconnect with the Land and listen to the wisdom of nature. It is a place where people can fall in love with and develop a relationship with the living world. It’s a place where people can remember;  where their souls
can remember where they came from. Remember a time when they chose to live symbiotically and at peace with nature. It’s a place where  people can develop partnerships, learn, deepen their spirituality, gain new perspectives, listen to the needs of the plants , and learn complex lessons from nature, while learning about the medicinal value of herbs." ~ Julie Y.

Sacred Roots Herbal Sanctuary is a woman owned, community run, small scale, people powered medicinal herb farm located in the rolling hills of  Shepherdstown, West Virginia.
