Episode 5 w/ J.D. Grove of Teehaus Bath & Body and Conspire Contemporary Craft : In this episode of Gather Stories I had the pleasure of sitting down and chatting with JD Grove about her life and the adventures that have brought her thus far in this world. JD is the maker behind Teehaus Bath and Body – a brand of all-natural skincare and bath and body made in Greencastle, IN and of course, carried at Gather. But sitting down with JD is never just about homemade bath and body – JD’s life encomasses not just farm-life, but also activating very important political and social change in her space in the world. Talking with JD inspires me to do better, to make change, and to continue creating community.
I hope you’ll listen closely to JD’s story here – her voice so peaceful and accepting, telling the story of growing up in rural Missouri with a ‘witch’ for a mom, learning about her queerness and then through her twenties traveling and homeless, becoming a farmer and then a business owner. JD’s story is incredibly empowering and she’s amazing to listen to. I really didn’t want to stop, and I relish in each time I get to sit down and chat with JD – I hope you will to. I can’t wait to see where JD, Teehaus, and Conspire continue to grow.
