Rich, aromatic, and delightfully sticky. At Soul Fire Farm, we use the calendula to make salve, often with young people, as part of learning to care for ourselves outside of the food/medical industrial complex. Resina is the most potent of calendulas with the highest concentration of plant resins, and is best for making herbal medicines. All healing, all revolution - is based on land.

Soul Fire Farm remits 100% of their proceeds from the sales of their seeds to the Stockbridge Munsee Band of the Mohican Nation.
