Herbal Remedies & Cold Process Soap Making
Maureen Anderson, teacher, goatherd, beekeeper, shepherdess, soap maker, mother of eight and grandmother of 10, has had a lifelong interest in farming, homesteading and herbal medicine.
She began this journey of learning when she was a child, taught many of these skills by a grandmother who instilled a love of herbs, family life, and wildcrafting. At her historic Home Farm, Maureen hosts workshops and classes on sustainable living, herbal medicine making, wild food foraging, and cheese making.
In March of 2020 she created the Toano Open Air Market in response to the community’s need for a safe and reliable place to shop, and for the local farmers’ and artisans’ need for an income during the pandemic closings. Maureen is the creator of The MotherVine radio program and owner of Tasha’s Own Goat’s Milk Soap and The Home Farm.
