Alpine Botanicals is a place to learn, heal, connect, & grow. In our artisan apothecary, healing space, and workshop venue, we will offer products, services, and educational experiences to foster health & resilience in the Front Range Rocky Mountain community. In our retail space, you can expect more than an herbal apothecary. Because our focus is on bioregional herbal medicine, we strive to grow or source locally much of our herbal inventory. We’ve looked to the regional community of Rocky Mountain medicine makers to stock our shelves with top quality products made with a conscience, including essential oils, herbal extracts, medicinal teas, and skincare. Though herbs are our passion, the shop is a venue for a multitude of other artisanal products inspired by wellness, creativity, & ecological sustainability. Alongside herbal products, we’ll also offer skincare items, locally handcrafted gifts, eco-friendly clothing, & carefully curated antique & vintage goods to create a beautiful rustic ambiance that invites visitors to linger!
Our healing space will offer bodywork services and consultations in herbal medicine, nutrition, holistic pregnancy support/Doula services, & flower essence therapies.
Our workshop space will offer a venue for certifications in Permaculture Design as well as classes/workshops in high altitude ecological gardening, Biodynamic horticulture, primitive skills, botany, holistic nutrition & cooking, herbal medicine & medicine making, homeopathy, Ayurvedic & Traditional Chinese Medicine, Art, mindfulness practices & meditation, and more!
Our project strives to be as fully integrated as possible, and the final cherry on top is a fully sustainable forest garden greenhouse that will flank the entire south side of the building. This beautiful green living space will help supplement the apothecary with more tender species of medicinals, as well as providing a look into the potential possibilities for greenhouse growing at 8200 feet high in the mountains. Having a greenhouse attached to our structure helps increase energy efficiency by decreasing heating costs in the winter. We will be able to hold gardening classes year round, and provide a beautiful “break room” for our employees and a sanctuary for volunteers and clinic visitors.
