Ten Essential Medicinals for the Northwest Garden

Event Date: 

Sunday, May 31, 2015 -
10:00am to 2:00pm

Event Type: 

During this workshop, Brian Basor, co-owner and manager of Fern Hill Nursery and Botanical Sanctuary, will share his expertise and experience with at least 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 the specimens growing in our sanctuary.  He will explain how each plant is processed for medicinal use, and the herbal actions involved in healing.

With an abundance of information about medicinal herbs, it's easy to get distracted by plants that are hard to grow or that you won't ever actually use.  In this workshop, we will focus directly on the essential medicinal herbs to grow in your garden.  We will use all of our senses to explore how these herbs taste and smell, how to help them thrive in the garden, and how to prepare these plants to support the health of you and your family.  When you learn how to care for these plants, they will help take care of you!

The cost for the workshop is $40 per person, $75 per couple.

Pre-registration is required, with a $25 deposit.  Please contact Devon at 541-942-3118 or devon@fernhillnursery.com

Please bring appropriate outdoor clothing, a water bottle, and a lunch.
