Yarrow Mountain Farm Welcomes You
Come visit, explore, and connect with aromatic and medicinal plants, nature, and one another.
Yarrow Mountain Farm is a 70-acre botanical dream unfolding and is the new home of the School for Aromatic Studies education center.
The farm is located in the Appalachian region of Southwest Virginia in Stuart, VA, not far from Fairy Stone State Park and about thirty minutes south of the Blue Ridge parkway and the musical town of Floyd, VA.
Jade’s journey to this land has been richly woven with blue heron, rattlesnake, woodpecker & hummingbird, frankincense, snake skin, tarot, strong women, photography, Jungian therapy and studies, massage therapy, plants, the forest, and other gifts. It has also been woven with tears, pain, relearning, reconnecting, and acceptance. And it is through this journey, that Jade finally opens up this sacred land for students to visit, explore, and connect with aromatic and medicinal plants, nature, and one another.
The biodiverse landscape here on the farm is home to hundreds of plant species and an abundance of wildlife that we share the land with. We strive to provide a safe, welcoming sanctuary for plants, animals, and humans from all walks of life.
Our botanical farm includes pasture, forest, two spring fed ponds, and the retreat center. The retreat area of the farm hosts four student cabins, a bathroom and shower facility, botanical gardens, a student kitchen and work area in shop, and Jade’s Garden cabin. Each student cabin can house 3-4 students each with plenty of space for personal belongings. Classes will be held in our Yurt down by one of our spring fed ponds.
We offer in-person retreats with a variety of topic focus areas. View our scheduled retreats to find out more about each one. More than ever our connection to one another matters. We hope you can join us!
The Student Cabins
We will be using Yarrow, Mullein, and Pine cabins for our 2020 retreats. Each cabin contains two full beds and one twin bed or two twin and one full. The cabins are rustic, simple, and incredibly comfy.
All mattresses are natural and organic with most of them being Avocado mattresses. Sheets, pillows, and mattress are protected by waterproof casing by Avocado, protecting you and others who sleep in the space.
There is electricity in the cabins. Each cabin contains a heater to keep warm on autumn nights or cool spring evenings. Each cabin also contains small couch, luggage racks, and/or other storage.
The bathhouse is a very short walk away. In the evenings, we will make sure this is well lit! We have two indoor showers and one full bathroom in the bathhouse. There are also two outdoor showers.
It’s the perfect place to take an aromatherapy, aromatic distillation, aromatic and herbal medicine making or other wellness-based classes, shed the busy-ness of life & recharge your visions and vitality.
