A little about Earth Goods and the folks that make it a reality...

Located in the rich and beautiful James River Basin in Buckingham, VA, Earth Goods is a unique venture that:


~ Promotes self sufficiency through the sharing of practical and traditional skills long forgotten for most folks

~ Teaches grounding and nature therapy through immersion in the natural world

~ Assists folks with honing latent or forgotten skills associated with energy and healing

~ Provides an inventory of all-natural products that are free from harmful chemicals and which are handmade by our family

~ Offers classes and instruction for such things as candlemaking, lotion, soaps, dowsing, energy work, foraging, and lots of other things


Our tagline, "Good people doing good things for the right reasons" is an accurate and very genuine summation of why we do what we do. 

We all have "day jobs", and those are important because they pay the bills. However, the thing that drives us to stay up way too late most nights and get up way too early most mornings is the desire to make a difference through Earth Goods.


When folks new to Earth Goods stumble across us on the internet or come by our table at the Farmer's Market or stop in at the Cabin if they see the door open, they usually have a vision in their head of what it is that we do. Many think that we are only a reseller of manufactured products (no way!), some think we are only a guide service, and others think that we only teach workshops for "crafty" skills. Almost always, new visitors are perplexed when they begin to understand the magnitude and diversity of what such a small group of people collaborating in such a tiny company is striving to accomplish. We are often told that we should stop being so diverse and should instead concentrate on a "niche market" if we want to be successful. Our response is always the same: our definition of "success" is in direct conflict with what societal and financial standards say it should be. 


To us, "success" is educating a family about the chemicals in their household and teaching them about healthy alternatives in order to alleviate the detrimental effect that these substances are having on their children. 


Success is taking someone into the forest and watching their reaction as they begin to "connect" with their surroundings, watching as their shoulders relax, their step becomes lighter, their anxieties dissolve, and they begin to delight in the amazing things around them, grounding and balancing their body and spirit in the process. 


Success is a group that started out as strangers laughing and sharing stories around a table as they learn to make their own candles or soaps, coming together in friendship through the shared energy of creativity.


Success is walking folks into their own backyards and teaching them to see the benefits of the plants they will find there, helping them to understand that what they thought was a weed is actually a powerful member of nature's pharmacy, ready to assist the body with healing, and showing them how to use these botanicals for their benefit.


Success is showing a group of people tangible proof of their own powerful energy body really DOES exist, and then watching their amazement as they learn to harness and use that energy for the good of themselves and others.


For us, the ultimate success is when folks make the connection between all of these things, and begin to understand that bringing them all together results in a balanced life which enables them to move through the world in a better way. As they make these changes in their own lives, they touch the lives of others. Relationships deepen, kindness is more prevalent, negative emotions subside, and the reliance on external things for quality of life lessens. It spreads, and THAT is what drives us - the certainty that whatever benefit we are able to provide to one person cannot help but be passed on to others in some measure. This is what Earth Goods exists for, plain and simple.

Meet Some Members of the Earth Goods Family ...


Miz Red

Founder,

Alchemist,

& Guide

The founder of Earth Goods, and known locally as "Miz Red", she is often seen slogging through anywhere there is mud, water & plants, making interesting things out of sticks & stones, bringing oil & water together to make a great bar of soap, or, her favorite - working with energy in all of it's fascinating forms.

Drawn to nature, healing, and energy work from earliest memories, Red has always done the things that Earth Goods is all about, but decided to make it "official", complete with a real storefront, production facility, a bank account and advertising, in order to reach out to as many people as possible, with the goal of helping them to improve their lives in the process.

Wiggz

Creative Madness

To say that this guy is a source of Creative Madness is an understatement - he rarely uses anything for it's intended purpose, and creates things - especially candles - that are off the chain.

A master of many things, Wiggz brings a depth of creativity to Earth Goods that would not exist without him. From crafting beautiful boxes and birdhouses (from raw trees!) to welding intricate things to making awesome candles to construction of our places and spaces, he can do most anything, and he makes us laugh a lot in the process.

Want to see some of his work? Visit the "Candles" page (accessed from the "Products" page), or stop by the Cabin or the Scottsville Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings!

Zack

Photography and Art

Bright, funny, and talented in many ways, Zack is not only our resident photographer, but he excels at all things artistic. 

He also helps with gathering of materials and production of products if forced into it, but his heart is elsewhere, so we mostly utilize his talents for things that he truly loves.

Fond of fire at a young age, he has (thank heavens) turned that fascination into something creative and is now a master fire-spinner. Other talents include cooking, juggling, and, as of late, learning to ride a unicycle.

We rent him out for entertainment purposes at parties, backyard cookouts, social events, and the like. He's cheap, and very, very funny, so the next time you're looking for some unusual (and slightly dangerous) entertainment, drop us an email for details!

Kelsi

Doer of Whatever Needs Doing, 

Market Boss

Kelsi doesn't really have a "title" or belong to a "department" because she just walks in, says "what needs to be done today?" and then does it. She's truly a gem, and we rely heavily on her to keep the cogs and wheels turning.

Kelsi has also become an excellent forager and is great in the field, identifying and collecting botanicals on a regular basis, then bringing them back to the shop for processing and production.

When not trimming soaps, labeling lotions,  stocking the shelves, or doing any of the hundred other things that she undertakes tirelessly, you can find this amazing young woman at the Scottsville Farmer's Market every Saturday - just look for the flaming red hair - you can't miss her.


She's also a cat person, in case you couldn't tell ...

Jack

Kayaking Expert, 

Nature Therapy Guide,

Tester of all Fat Dawg  Products

Jack is never far from Miz Red, whether she's making soap, foraging for plants, doing energy work on someone, or running rapids in their shared kayak.

Intelligent and adventurous, Jack is an integral part of the Earth Goods family, and is one of the most unique creatures we have ever had the good fortune to spend time with.

That being said, he's also territorial and obnoxious at times, but we're working on that ...
