Appalachian Tea Ceremonies
Appalachian Tea Ceremonies
Every other Thursday afternoon, from 4-5 or 5:30pm, Mary Morgaine Squire will be leading an Appalachian Tea Ceremony at Herb Mountain Farm.
In a beautiful setting, she will serve tea from plants grown near and far, with a highlighted local infusion each time, woven together with stories of the plants, quiet reflection of their gifts, song offerings, heart sharing and praises to our plants as allies and healers.
Inspired by ancient tea traditions and the power of plants to transform, and her dear friend Jessie Wilder’s idea of creating an Appalachian Tea Ceremony, Mary Morgaine sees this time together as a way of slowing down in a hectic, overstimulating world, to reconnect with what really matters, and settle into our sense of place.
Donations only. Give what you can, take what you need. RSVP is important so that she can know how much tea to make and how many to set up for. Please be timely as this is a ceremony and begins promptly at 4.

Mary Morgaine Squire is the Co-owner and Proprietess of Herb Mountain Farm Learning and Lodging Center and Botanical Sanctuary. She has been consciously engaging with the plant world for 26 years, but prior to that she was actively engaging with plants and didn’t even know it! After all, her food and oxygen came from plants! Mary Morgaine has traveled to several continents to meet and learn from the indigenous plants and healers and has spent many years on a farm growing her own trees, shrubs, herbs, vegetables and flowers to learn directly from the plants themselves. She loves to frolic in the forest and let Mother Nature tell her stories, that she can then come share with you!
