Join the Camden Garden Club for a free public talk about creating a healing herb garden. The hour-long in-person event begins at 9:30 a.m. and takes place at the Camden American Legion located at 91 Pearl Street.
Join long time Maine herbalist and organic gardener Deb Soule for an informative and beautiful slide show presentation on how to grow, gather and use a variety of easy to grow herbs including lemon balm, lavender, Echinacea, calendula, sweet basil, holy basil, and thyme. Deb will include guidelines for tending healthy soil, composting, and watering, information on gathering and drying herbs, and basic information on using healing herbs wisely and safely. She will also include a few of her favorite herbs for attracting ruby-throated hummingbirds.
Soule is an herbalist, biodynamic gardener, teacher, and writer living in rural Maine. In 1985, she founded Avena Botanicals Herbal Apothecary, inspired by her faith in the healing qualities of plants, her love of gardening, and wish to make herbs and herbal education accessible to folks living in rural areas. She is the author of Healing Herbs for Women, How to Move Like a Gardener, and most recently The Healing Garden.
Refreshments will be offered starting at 9:00 a.m. All are welcome for this free program. After the presentation, there will be a short Club meeting from 10:30 a.m – 11:00 a.m. and all are invited to attend.
