Event Description: 

This presentation will focus on gardening with plants that have medicinal uses.  In Connecticut we can grow a large number of perennial herbs in small and large spaces, including pots. Using herbs for nutrition, illness prevention and intervention at home can be easy and is something families have done for generations. Debra will illustrate some of the safest and easiest ways to use the plants we grow and that also grow around us as “weeds”.  Examples will be provided both through visual media, plants and products.  Handouts will be available.

Debra Hultgren is a retired public school educator and administrator.  She is a practicing community herbalist and a master gardener.  She grows, harvests and prepares plant foods and medicines and teaches others how to include these healing traditions in their own lives.
