About Toadstool Botanicals
Welcome! Toadstool Botanicals is here to bring you closer to plants & fungi through ethically foraged and cultivated goods. This business is owned and solely run by Rachel – an herbalist, farmer, and forager living in the mid-Atlantic region of the US. I pride myself on growing or foraging every single plant that goes into each product, and highlighting the immense power of plants local to the Washington DC, mid-Atlantic, and East Coast regions. Toadstool Botanicals focuses on seasonal offerings, and working with the plants around us. I especially value foraging invasive species and practicing reciprocity with the ecosystems and plant communities I harvest from through environmental stewardship and education. Feel free to drop me a message any time if you have questions about foraging in metropolitan areas, how I source different items, or anything else that comes to mind!
Just received the Aronia and Wineberries I ordered from Toadstool Botanicals and Rachel did a fantastic job on packaging these berries for their trip down to very hot & humid NC! Even after sitting in a hot mail box in direct sunlight they were in perfect condition. The ice pack however was done for!! Upon opening the box, I was greeting with the most pleasant red wine aroma from the wineberries. Thanks Rachel!!
