Carol Wade founded Earth Island Herbs with a mission to promote self-sufficiency and positive change; to educate our communities about the many healthful properties of the plants around us and how to grow, harvest and use them properly; and to cultivate and build down to earth community.

A foundational part of our work is the Earth Island Medicinal Herb Garden. Nestled in Ojai’s East End, this unique garden was created to educate and inspire the public about the many healing properties of plants, and features native and regionally adapted plants traditionally used in herbal medicine. The garden is always free and open to the public, and we work day in and day out to maintain and continue to grow this beautiful and inviting educational resource for all to enjoy. 

When you become a patron of Earth Island Herbs, you're not only helping to grow the medicinal herb garden and support EIH's mission to spread knowledge about the place of herbs in our lives and health, you're part of creating a community that values our connection to nature and holistic health for all. 
Tiers
Seeding support
$3 or more per month

Become a part of our community. Every little bit helps!

Mulch matters
$5 or more per month

Join this tier and help us buy mulch for the garden. We appreciate the help keeping the weeds at bay!

Make a mark
$8 or more per month

An important part of the educational aspect of the garden, these plant markers will identify the common name, Latin binomial, and some of the major uses for each type of medicinal herb in the garden—but with more than a hundred different specimens in the garden, making them is not a simple task. Join this tier and support Carol's plant markers!

Sponsor a specimen
$12 or more per month

Carol has been carefully selecting native and regionally adapted medicinal herbs for the garden for over seven years, and she plants more each season. By sponsoring a specimen you support the herbs already in the garden as well as future additions. Thank you for helping the garden grow!

Take on a garden bed
$25 or more per month

Each bed in the garden has distinctive qualities that lends itself to
experiential education and practical use. Each bed also requires ongoing maintenance, including weeding, proper irrigation, pruning, harvesting and seed-saving. This continued work is foundational to our mission, and your support means we can keep the garden sustainable from the ground up!

Garden grower
$50 or more per month

Gratitude beyond words. As a special thank you for your support, Carol will give you and a friend a personal one hour tour of the garden when you join.

Goals
$87 of $100 per month
If we reach $100 a month, Carol will make a video on how to dry and bundle white sage.
