Though I’ve only spent a few hours with Sara Schuster so far, I know it’s just the beginning of what’s sure to be a meaningful friendship.
I first came across Sara last fall at the 2019 Folk Magic Fest in Nashville, and when I looked her up on Instagram afterwards and saw that part of her bio read “vegan plant witch,” I was like “I need to know this woman.”
I reached out to her in December with the dual request of bringing her on the podcast AND being my gardening doula (I need help, y’all), she was as excited as I was. In this conversation, we weave between fun and challenging topics, and if you’re interested in gardening, herbalism, intuition, tarot, veganism, animal rights, or body positivity, you’ll love this episode!
You’ll hear how f-ing excited I am about Sara’s newest offering, the Full Moon Fill-Up zine (on paper, mailed to you every month!)— and don’t forget to check out her podcast, Tending Seeds, and her shop where you can buy her seasonal offerings (right now, her custom Elderberry syrup and a Winter Wellness tea… I just placed an order for both and am so excited to pick them up this week, but she will ship them to you wherever if you’re not local!)
