is a small herb farm and market garden located in the southern black hills of South Dakota. We have a passion for a simple sustainable lifestyle and strive to live in harmony with our environment and community. We believe in giving back, supporting our neighbors, using the gifts of nature, and re-using what we have or recycling. We seek to be part of a sustainable, self-supporting community, one with healthy soil, water, air and relationships.
Wonderment Gardens offers a full line of herbal products as well as fresh, naturally-grown garden vegetables and herb plants. We strive to offer and support public educational services such as herb walks, public and private yoga classes, sustainable technology seminars and workshops.
We also create and educate about the Majestic Hair Flower.
