Located in Charlottesville, Virginia, The Elderberry combines an herbal apothecary, retail space, VDAC certified kitchen and a knowledgeable staff to provide a joyful learning experience with herbs. The focus is on locally grown herbs and artisan quality herbal products.



The Elderberry provides the Charlottesville community a place to explore the many facets of herbalism.  When not being used to craft in-house lines of herbal products, the VDAC certified kitchen doubles as a classroom to encourage others to learn about the safe and effective uses of plant medicines. Central Virginia has many gifted herbalists and local herbal products and we showcase as many of them as we can.

Our apothecary contains bulk herbs, powders and extracts. Our knowledgeable staff can help answer questions and suggest blends for common health concerns.  Specific formulations can be created by either us or at the request of a participating practitioner. Classes and workshops are offered on a regular basis in addition to private consultations with certified herbalists.
