About Us
Ashé and Tony met in September of 2016 and immediately bonded over their love of plants, permaculture, and sustainable living. Not long after, they began their visioning process for a life mission to reconnect humans to the Earth together. Combining Ashé’s background in herbalism and Tony’s background in cultivation, they began planting seeds, literally and metaphorically, and thus began the birth of Spiral Roots Sanctuary.
We started this business by selling native + medicinal plants, vegetable starts, & herbal products at farmers markets (and flea markets!) in Southern Appalachia. Wanting to reach a wider audience, we began going to three day festivals + events and setting up a traveling tea lounge where we set up our booth of plant friends and medicinals to share with those we meet, along with a traveling apothecary for making personalized tea blends on the spot, fresh roasted coffee (we roast our own!), and other delicious herbal concoctions to drink. This is often where you can find us when the weather is warm, giving plant talks to all who want to listen or join in on the conversation.

Practices
Our farm is located in Mars Hill, NC as a sister collaboration of Floating Leaf Farm. Here, you can find our native & medicinal plant nursery, as well as our ever growing garden beds of medicinal herbs that we use in our herbal products.

One of our biggest missions at Spiral Roots Sanctuary is to remind people that taking our health into our own hands is as easy as stepping into our backyards or into the forest. Our plants are 100% naturally grown using only what the Earth provides, and our herbal products use 100% sustainably harvested and grown herbs, flowers, and roots, never with any chemicals. We believe in providing the highest and purest quality goods for the health of mind, body, soul, and soil.
