We view sustainability as both an economic term and an ecological practice. Thus, we emphasize two primary areas in our work here on Bloodroot Mountain: forest stewardship and artisan craftsmanship.
We believe that artists and artisans play a significant role in defining modern Appalachian culture. We hope that our abundant natural resources might serve as a beacon of stewardship for sustainable forestry.
Bloodroot Mountain is located on 21 forested acres, nestled in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. Dedicated to forest stewardship, we are currently in the process of obtaining our Certified Sustainable Forest status, in collaboration with The Tennessee Department of Agriculture.
Our sense of place is directly shaped, formed, and informed by our hands-on experience as stewards of our forestland.
Living and working here on Bloodroot Mountain, we know firsthand the physical and emotional health benefits that close contact with nature can provide.
Inspired by shinrin-yoku, the Japanese art and science of forest bathing, Bloodroot Mountain now offers the Beeches Forest Bathing Collection, a handmade line of aromatherapy body care products designed to promote wellness and relaxation.
