During this workshop, Brian Basor, herbalist and co-owner of Fern Hill Nursery and Botanical Sanctuary, will share his experience with ten plants that he believes are essential for a local medicinal garden.  Brian will discuss identification, cultivation, and harvest of these particular species and introduce you to live plants in pots and in the InJoy Wellness garden.  He will explain how each plant is processed for medicinal use, and the herbal actions involved in healing.  Participants will make herbal teas, infusions, and other goodies in the InJoy kitchen, and will use all of their senses to explore how these herbs taste, smell, and keep us healthy.

The InJoy Wellness Center is located near Sweet Life at 775 Monroe Street, Eugene, OR 97402.
