Growing Backyard Herbs for Vital Wellness | Herbalist & Author Maria Noël Groves, Wintergreen Botanicals
Expand your garden with easy-to-grow herbs that taste great in tea, food, and herbal remedies while also enhancing optimal health in a variety of ways. Maria will discuss the medicinal benefits and highlight how to grow, harvest, dry, and make medicine with some of her favorite common and less common herbs and weeds featured in her book Grow Your Own Herbal Remedies including holy basil (tulsi), lemon balm, marshmallow, Korean Licorice mint, motherwort, calendula, lemongrass, oat straw/milky oat seed, and lemon verbena, plus a shout out to indispensable herbal weeds dandelion and nettle. These beloved herbs can be harvested within one season and provide nutrition, calm, gentle energy, and support for the immune system, nervous system, cognition, digestion, detoxification, inflammation, cardiovascular health, and sleep. She’ll also give recommendations for where to buy these herbs as organic seedlings or seeds locally and by mail.
