HerbMentor Radio: Tasha & Devon Greenwood, How an Herbal Love Story is Creating a Hub for Queer Community

When you enter MXED GREENS apothecary, one of the first things you’ll notice is the deep care that herbalists Tasha and Devon Greenwood have put it into every detail of this herb shop…

From the cozy self care station to the herbal zine library to the handmade signs outlining their sliding scale model, MXED GREENS is a space that centers the deeply rooted wellness of its community. Some of the core values that guide this small town Massachusetts herb shop include accessibility, uplifting queer community, and bioregional herbalism.

And you know what’s the most surprising thing about MXED GREENS? This thriving herb shop is only 1 year old!

In this episode of HerbMentor Radio, Tasha (they/them) and Devon (they/them) draw on their experience as new business owners and practicing clinical herbalists to share…

  • Their #1 piece of advice for new herbal business owners
  • The importance of healthcare settings that celebrate queer and trans experiences
  • Why the gap between herbal and allopathic medicine might be smaller than you think

We even go on a little herb nerd tangent to chat about one of Tasha’s favorite seaweeds, Irish Moss, which has a rich history as a food, immune tonic, and skincare ingredient.
