About the Farm
Lunaria Flower Farm is situated on the California coast in Pescadero, CA on unceded Awaswas territory. The farm was created in the Winter of 2019 to provide high quality flower medicine to the Greater Bay Area community.
Flower medicine is exactly what it sounds like; flowers that have medicinal value. Medicinal value means more than what we think of when it comes to Western medicine. Flower medicine can be used to prevent and treat illness, shift our energy and vibration, uplift and soothe our emotions and deepen our connection to the earth. We hope to share the power, knowledge, beauty and magic of flowers with our offerings at Lunaria Flower Farm.
The farm offers flowers from Traditional Chinese Medicine, Traditional Western Herbalism and fresh and dried ornamentals; many highlight the permaculture concept of stacking functions by crossing over through these different categories. While the farm is not certified organic, we use organic growing practices for the health of the soil, plants and people.
The flowers of the farm are interplanted with our friends at Brisa Ranch fruits and vegetables to create a diversified field full of beneficial insects and pollinators, food and medicine - without this collaboration, the farm would not be possible! Through farming and community building, Lunaria Flower Farm strives to contribute to our collective healing in both the physical and spiritual realms.
Lunaria, in Latin means moon-like, is also referred to as honesty, money plant, silver dollar, Chinese dollar plant because of its round, clear seed pods. The farm honors the cycles of the moon and the earth, the Chinese values of abundance and prosperity as well as honesty and communication in all aspects of its work.
