Visit to Avena Botanicals

Yesterday I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Avena Botanicals with my professor Nishi's Edible Botany class. Avena Botanicals is located in Rockport, Maine and was founded by Deb Soule whom I described a bit in an earlier post. She is a wonderful, generous, and amazing herbalist. Check out the Avena Botanicals website.

Here are some photos from the visit.

Nishi and Deb

Juliette de Bairacli Levy--one of Deb's (and my) great inspirations towards herbalism. She is known as the grandmother of herbal medicine. Search her name for a vast collection of valuable books on the topic, including some of the first ever published on veterinary herbalism.
