Herbstalk 2012: A Gathering for Herbal Education
On Saturday, June 9, Herbstalk 2012 will gather herbalists, holistic health practitioners, nutritionists and plant enthusiasts in an effort to inspire and educate the community on a variety of herbal topics. Herbstalk will feature a marketplace for handmade herbal products, along with more than 20 talks given by New England herbalists. The event will take place at The Center for Arts at the Armory, in Somerville, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. It includes live music, tea tastings, children’s activities and raffle prizes.
Organizers say Herbstalk will introduce people to local businesses and organizations in the herbal field in order to further their education about the value of herbalism. “We want to help people make informed decisions about the herbs they use in their daily lives,” says Herbstalk founder Stephanie Zabel. “We envision a world in which people of all backgrounds have an understanding of herbs that can be used to heal, feed and nurture us all.”
The Center for Arts at the Armory is located at 191 Highland Ave., Somerville. For more information, call 617-504-1714 or visit Herbstalk.org.
