Just for Members: Private Tour of Avena Botanicals

July 21 @ 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Join WSP Founder Heather McCargo and Deb Soule, founder of Avena Botanical’s herbal apothecary in Rockport ME, for a private tour of the Avena gardens. In the late 1990’s Heather worked closely with Deb on a masterplan design for the new property Avena had purchased for the expanded herb farm on an old Maine farm surrounded by woodlands and conservation land. Deb Soule is a gifted organic grower and teacher on herbal uses of plants, many of them native species. This enchanting garden is the headquarters of Avena’s FDA-approved medicinal processing facility as well as where the location where the bulk of the herbs are lovingly grown.

Please note: attendees are responsible for their own transportation. Wild Seed Project members will receive a registration invitation for this event in late June. Not a member? Join today!
