Gardens and responsibly cultivated fields look lovely --but, it is important to restore the wild

 with native plants, trees, shrubs, flowers, and medicinal plants that once inhabited the area. Missouri is home to a diversity of both flora and fauna. In Agriculture farming regions of Missouri,

a strip of riparian corridor may be the only woody cover found on the farm.  

Green Belts:  At the Vintage Homesteader Botanical Sanctuarywe plant and maintain trees, shrubs, and Botanical plants along our Little Bourbeuse River riparian corridor, providing an important wildlife habitat component.  The Little Bourbeuse River runs through our 76-acre site.  

The Bourbeuse River watershed is located within the northeastern quarter of the Ozark Highlands.  The main stem of the Bourbeuse River joins the Meramec River. The Bourbeuse River is 147 miles from mouth to headwaters --the lower 132 miles have permanent flow. The watershed drains 843 square miles and is composed of a number of smaller watersheds including the Little Bourbeuse River.  

Into the wild
:  We are a serene place to for communion with the green spirits ---  Plant Talks and Medicine Walks provide a path for the learning journey. Here we share our knowledge of growing in the wild with ethical wildcrafting, medicine plant identification and preservation, making herbal teas, culinary foods, and homesteading recipes.
