WELCOME TO THE FOREST GARDEN
For over 20 years Botanigals native plant nursery, botanical studio, and permaculture gardens operate amidst forested hillside and wetland in both the Townships of Lake of Bays and Algonquin Highlands.
Our native plant nursery knows wild—with 20 years of experience and research in the field. We use indigenous genetics, local seed sources, regionally sourced species from our botany peer group, and safe soils.
From our family to yours—please enjoy your experience with us, knowing that our products support balanced ecosystems, of which people are a part. We live and grow wild, with the health of our forest friends and our watersheds at heart.
FOOD-GRADE FOREST HYGIENE PRODUCTS
Botanigals personal hygiene dusts, powders, and sprinkles are made with common kitchen ingredients, wild-crafted forest essences from our wild gardens, and 100% pure essential oils. Now that’s practical personal hygiene!
Companion recipes for our line of Odd Spice Mixes + Botanical Infused Wild Salts live here.
We work with and for the plant and wildlife communities that exist here over the Canadian Shield – the foundation of Muskoka and Haliburton, Ontario, Canada
LET YOUR IMAGINATION RUN WILD
Herbal products from our woodland apothecary are ethically and sustainably harvested from our permaculture gardens beneath the canopy of 200 acres of mixed conifer and hardwood forest. We cultivate our harvest and do not take the lives of any of the plants that give us their good medicine.
