Wednesday, 5 p.m.
Avena Botanicals, Rockport

Join herbalist and biodynamic herb gardener Deb Soule for an informative walk through of Avena Botanicals medicinal herb gardens. Deb and a crew of gardeners collect over 1800 pounds of medicinal herbs by hand each year from 2-1/2 acres. These herbs are then immediately processed on-site into a variety of tinctures, teas, oils and salves. Avena is the first Demeter-certified biodynamic farm in Maine and Deb will include an introduction to biodynamics as part of this tour. Potluck to follow.
