Forrest Green Farm is now a part of Virginia’s LOVEWORKS program. Our LOVE sign was built by Rob and designed and painted by a local VA artist Philippe from Our Numinous Nature (IG @ournuminousnature).
Each letter has multiple herbs or flowers on it, they are some of our favorites here at FGF. The herbs and flowers on the sign are also plants that we grow, sell as plants and even use in our herbal tea product line!
L – Passionflower, Dandelion
O – Echinacea
V – Lavender, Rosemary
E – Elderberries, Red Clover, Nasturtiums and a Bee
Philippe is a naturalist illustrator, he designed the Herbaceous Human Herbalist Coloring Book (available at the Market on the Farm and our mail order) and has a podcast about nature called Our Numinous Nature. “Our Numinous Nature is a collection of reverential stories about nature & its effect on our souls. We’ll be hearing from folks with a deep connection to the natural world, from herbalists to hunters, wildlife rehabilitators to trappers, artists to homesteaders… The hope is to weave together these disparate lifestyles through tales of profundity, love, and awe. Find a comfy log and join us at the sonic campfire.”
Please come out and visit the farm and take a picture with the sign. When you share your photos please tag the farm (@forrestgreenfarm) and use the hashtags #loveworks, #loveVA, #forrestgreenfarm. We can’t wait to see all your pictures!
The Farm and the Market on the Farm & Gift Shop are open Thursday-Monday 10am-5pm.
