Lori Collins Jenkins (Sister of Mother Earth- Fire ciders)

It is my absolute mission to create a community within my own medicine and food, so I’m always looking to partner with others to add local products to what I make. When I met Kevin at the Roots and Fruits Winter Market vending, I knew I had to collaborate with him! We are both big believers in teaching about what we sell, so our partnership came together naturally. I use his chaga in my elderberry syrup, and it gives a deep, earthy taste and color as well as a super local immunity boost. Kevin creates that underlying thread that ties us all through his foraging adventures and beautiful mushrooms. I’m so grateful he shares his products for others to enjoy, and I’m even more grateful others become part of our community through the medicine we’ve made together!
