Saving the Planet, One Herb at a Time with Jane Hawley Stevens, winner of the 2020 MOSES Organic Farmer of the Year Award.
As earth stewards, our dedication to healing plants maintains a culture, tradition and knowledge that benefits both people and the planet. Certain plants resonate more with specific events and periods in life. Jane will discuss some of the herbs that are important for 2020: Elder, Echinacea, Boneset and Red Sage, focusing on how developing a relationship with these plants based on mutuality and respect heals both us and the planet.
