Local herbalist Suki Roth grows the herbs for her tea blends and tinctures at her peaceful home, Herb Haven. The herbs are lovingly grown in her garden or gathered wild (ethically wild-crafted) from the lower Piedmont, NC, mountains, with a few coming from out of state.
Suki has worked hard to get Herb Haven up-and-running since she moved in 2008. She’s replanted natural habitats and added medicinal herbs to the landscaping. The six-acre setting is protected in a bowl of land—it wasn’t flat enough to clear for fields, so many old hardwoods survive. Down a long driveway, you’ll pass a nice-sized garden with raised beds before arriving at the house. There is a lower pasture area, but the rest is woods.
As a community herbalist with a growing consultation practice, Suki finds great reward in teaching and sharing her love for North Carolina’s abundant supply of medicinal and edible plants. Suki shares her infectious enthusiasm through classes and workshops focused on identification, application, preparation, and plant communication (plant meditation). Her greatest joys come from the many gifts one receives while communicating with nature. Growing, exploring, and communicating her love for plants is now a life passion.
