Our Legacy Organic Farm
April 20, 2013
Motherlove literally began around our kitchen table. Kathryn had been growing herbs and teaching others to use them for years, and when she became pregnant and gave birth to Silencia, the products she made for herself and gave to friends were so popular that people begged her to sell them. So she did – and Motherlove was born.
We’ve come full circle this spring – we’re now the proud operators of an organic farm and education center on the Front Range. The farm is 120 acres and will supply us with local, sustainable, certified organic herbs for Motherlove as well as grow traditional organic grains and vegetables.
The farm will also function as an educational community center. Plans include classes for families on growing, harvesting and preparing herbs for use in personal care products, including the herbs used in Motherlove products. We will also offer herb identification sessions for wild edible and medicinal native plants. Educational series will focus on the importance of organics in the food industry, sustainability, biodiversity and other environmental issues, including water conservation.
It’s a dream come true for us, we can think of no better way for Motherlove to reconnect with our roots and honor Kathryn’s legacy than farming. Our farm also gives us a chance to give back to the community that has given us so much and share Kathryn’s knowledge and wisdom with our friends and neighbors.
