This unique series offers a window into herbalism from some of the foremost practitioners, teachers, growers, and product makers in our area – join us for this very special opportunity!
Are you interested in herbalism? Did you know that the greater Pioneer Valley region is one of the nation’s richest resources for quality herbal health care, education, services and products?
Come sit for an hour in the newly finished stone amphitheater and stunning medicinal garden outside Hungry Ghost Bread, surrounded by the beauty and grace of hundreds of medicinal plants.
Susan Pincus, a pioneer in the CSA medicinal herb movement, is owner-operator of Sawmill-Herb Farm in Florence. Friday, July 7, Susan will share her journey and vision, why she chose to grow medicinal herbs and start an herb CSA, as well as reflecting on what she has learned growing medicinal herbs in the Pioneer Valley and marketing them throughout the Northeast.
This series and the medicinal garden & amphitheater is presented by Local Harmony, a local non-profit dedicated to growing gardens, the environment and community through cultivation and stewardship.
